Shannon‘s love for childbirth goes back to childhood when she started watching TLC’s A Baby Story and it only grew from there. She started high school with her focuses narrowed down upon early childhood education and early childhood development. After graduation she got a job working in a local daycare and eventually decided to do an in-home daycare where she was able to raise her three children.
