Prior to starting a career in orthopedic massage, Shannon danced both competitively and recreationally for over 13 years focusing on ballet, jazz, and modern. Given her extensive background in dance, Shannon has experienced first hand the injuries that can be sustained during strenuous activity and understands the need to take care of our machine – The Body! Through her dance training, she discovered a passion for learning about the human body, how it operates, and facilitating the process of healing after an injury. Her goal is keeping her clients active and healthy enough to continue their passion in life.
When Shannon is not at SMI she loves to be out and about, exploring and enjoying life with her energetic (and a little bit goofy) dog, Tiger, who definitely keeps her on her toes!
