WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“With her experience hosting on QVC, Shannon has been a genius helping me target my brand for a TV audience. She is able to give me the constructive criticism I need to get better, which she was immediately on point and so right, without making me feel defensive or like the beginner I am. I’m lucky to have found her, and look forward to working with her for a long time to come.”
