According to Shannon, “I first learned about Child’s Voice when I met Kate Bousum while working for a nonprofit search firm in Chicago and instantly, I was drawn to the mission of supporting children with hearing loss and their families While I am not personally impacted by hearing loss, nor within my immediate family, I grew up in a home focused on education and serving children with special needs. My mother, now retired, worked as a teacher’s aide in special education with young children (ages 4 – 6) who were impacted by various disabilities. What I learned from her is that each child deserved an opportunity to thrive, no matter what difficult cards they had been dealt.

I have carried those lessons with me throughout life and have sought opportunities to continue serving including through work at my church, Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, LA and my former employment with the State of Louisiana as a Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor as well as with Jobs for Youth Chicago as a Program Director.”
