I am lucky to have been born and raised in the beautiful state of Colorado. I have many fond memories of ice skating and snowboarding growing up. I have also lived in Long Beach, California and Cape May, New Jersey. I graduated from South Dakota State University with a BS in Psychology and began my journey to become a postpartum doula in 2016. My husband is my best friend, and our home is full with 2 crazy dogs, a cat-like-dog and a 3 legged bearded dragon. We live in a cute 100+ year old home about 12 miles outside of Sioux Falls in Hartford, SD.
I care about people, am empathetic and pride myself on being a great listener. Children are naturally drawn to me, I really enjoy working with older siblings, and all types of animals too. I am intuitive, observant, analytical, passionate, creative, and kind. I love to serve others and don’t mind folding laundry, running to the grocery store, or making you a meal. I see a need to be filled and have the needed skills and gumption to Do something about it. I offer Friendly, Never Forced Parent and Baby Support and would love to help you to Parent with Confidence!

What People Say
I have seen Shannon while working with children. She builds a quick trust and used her creativity to keep them engaged. Very impressive. I would hire her again.
I don’t know what we would have done without a doula. Even as a healthcare provider Upper Cervical of Sioux Falls, birth/new baby was a new process and to have an advocate and support system for both of us was invaluable!
Shannon is fabulous with children, and she can provide lots of evidence-based research to support you during the post-partum transition. Renee’s Website
