Shannon was such an asset to our event….Her personal story connected with the people attending the event as she shared her fears and her strengths during her recent battle against Ovarian cancer. Shannon’s message to keep your eye on the larger goal, but focus on what you can do day by day, or even hour by hour resonated with all the people who have been touched by this disease. So many attending the Soroptimist Vicki Linn Walk commented that Shannon was warm and approachable. and they were in awe at her accomplishments. I was especially touched by a young women who drove several hours, hoping to meet her gymnastic idol. Shannon took the time to speak to her and allowed a special moment for pictures. She was also generous to everyone who wanted a picture, autograph and even allowed others to try on her gorgeous gold medals.
We are so grateful that Shannon was with us for that special day and she certainly made a great contribution to the success of the Vicki Linn Walk for Ovarian Cancer Awareness.

Just a note of thanks for the terrific job Shannon did in speaking at our educational session in Las Vegas. We received a number of compliments on the presentation, and she was the centerpiece to making it a success. In addition, the meet and greet was a great opportunity for attendees to come to our booth and speak with her.
We are proud to be associated with such a first class professional.

Shannon provided a very insightful message to our guests about survival and determination. She was very personable and approachable for our guests and a joy to work with. We look forward to working with her again.
