The Emily Program: Tell us about yourself!
Shannon: Hello! My name is Shannon and I may be biased but I think I have one of the greatest roles on the planet. I am a Professional Relations Specialist on the West Coast for The Emily Program. This is a fancy way of saying I get to spend my time talking about eating disorder treatment and all the hard work that our staff and clients do!
Primarily, my goal is to encourage and facilitate conversations between our program and other healthcare organizations. I work from a home office just north of Seattle, Washington to support our Seattle Outpatient site and our Seattle Residential site. My goal is to win employee of the month within my little home office but I keep getting beat out by my office assistant, who happens to be my one-year-old labradoodle puppy, Henry!
When I am not talking about The Emily Program, I love to spend time with my husband, Stuart. We love to find the best foodie spots (especially for desserts!), re-watch our favorite episodes of Friends, and take Henry to explore local beaches. I love to be creative and you can often find me attempting the latest Pinterest craft trends, or recreating my favorite recipes from The Food Network.
