Shannon obtained her Masters of Science in Nursing from ETSU in December 2013. During her studies she spent her clinical hours providing care at the Johnson City Community Health Center and The Day Center that provides care and assistance to the homeless in our community. These opportunities allowed her to understand the medical needs in our community and find ways of helping the less fortunate.
Prior to obtaining her NP degree Shannon worked as a Registered Nurse for Holston Valley Medical Center in the Neuro-Trauma Intensive Care Unit and Progressive Care Unit. She assisted in teaching basic Neurological assessments to new nurses on the unit as well as seasoned nurses that were new to the Neuro-Trauma ICU.
