Here’s what some of my previous partners have valued about our work together:

an event that opened eyes & hearts

“I worked with Shannon on a storytelling project for the Atlanta Center for Self Sufficiency (ACSS). The purpose of the project was to engage the broader community in the work of poverty alleviation through employment readiness and job placement programs. The outcome was an event that really opened people’s eyes and hearts. Shannon has an amazing way of getting to the essence of who people are and empowering them to share it in a way that is authentic and approachable. Shannon is a masterful communicator who sheds light on things that matter and is able to help others to do the same.”

— Adrianne Hamilton-Butler

confidence & compassion

“Shannon is a spectacular presenter. She engaged immediately with a room full of people whom she had just met, a group of Fellows with the Mandela Washington Fellowship at GSU. Shannon’s presentation is as authentic as she is, and she presents with confidence and compassion. I can clearly see how Shannon’s storytelling expertise resonates in her presentation style, and her deep care for humans and their stories shine through as she speaks.”

— Erin Oakley, Training Development & Operations, Andrew Young School of Policy Studies

words have impact

“Shannon’s curriculum is world class. Her words have impact, whether she is telling a story or coaching other passionate individuals. Her dedication to this art, and to developing this skill in others is commendable! I thoroughly enjoy working with Shannon. I utilize the art of storytelling in my professional realm to focus the impact of my words, and in my personal life to process experiences. The ability to build community from words, to establish connections from shared experiences, and the courage to articulate, are not taught in traditional corporate or education settings. These are the real ways in which StoryMuse is changing our Atlanta community, and the world.”

— Christin Mercedes, Business Leader & Model
