She earned a Bachelor’s degree (Honours) in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Regina, in Canada. While pursuing her studies Shannon became the first ever Canadian recipient of the prestigious graduate student grant from the American Psychological Association’s Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues. Shannon has a passion for community and frequently advocates for the rights of individuals and families living with mental illness and special needs. She is a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and a member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. Shannon’s clinical career has spanned 20 years across Canada and the Cayman Islands, where she has worked for organizations such as Family Services Canada, Health Services Canada, and the Cayman Islands Government and in 2004 opened the doors to The Wellness Centre, Ltd.

Shannon’s clinical emphasis is in the area of psychological assessment and solution focused clinical interventions with adults and children. The success of The Wellness Centre can be clearly seen as a reflection of Shannon’s anchoring belief that all individuals possess the power within to make positive changes not only in their own lives, but also in the lives of their families, in their places of work, and in their communities. Shannon is extremely proud of The Wellness Centre’s growth and more importantly the impact its services and programmes are having in the lives of the people of the Cayman Islands.

Known for her TedTalk titled 'The Unlikely Benefit of Inclusion' Shannon is passionate about seeing kids, regardless of needs or ability on the soccer pitch simply enjoying life and being included.
