About Me

My name is Shannon and I have been a registered nurse for over 13 years now. I still work per diem as a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) nurse at Kaiser in San Leandro. I have two kids, named Elizabeth and Jacob, ages 12 and 9. I have a cat named Charlie and a dog named Max. My fiance and I are about to buy our first home and start renovations. My passion for education began when I first started nursing school and realized the nursing profession is experiencing a shortage of educators.
