Host/Co-writer, 2019
The podcast inspired by the GCDD Storytelling Project is a testament to the power of storytelling as a way of embracing intersectionality, leveling the playing field, and ensuring that the quietest voices among us get heard loud and clear.

As a partnership between the participants, GCDD, Resurgens Impact Consulting, L’arche Atlanta, StoryMuse, Frqncy Media, and Listen Up Audio, it is also a testament to the power of collaborative processes.

Hidden Voices is available on Apple, Spotify, iHeart, Google Play, and Stitcher.

“Intelligent, thorough, and intuitive are words that come to mind when I think about Shannon. Shannon and I worked together on The Storytelling Project through the GA Council on Developmental Disabilities. Shannon was excellent at working with a diverse group of participants with a wide range of developmental disabilities. Her skill connecting with people and translating that connection and the person’s story into written form was an asset to the project and elevated the quality of project overall. She also makes the most delicious coffee with her own special ingredients! Shannon would make a solid contribution to any project as lead or as a member of a team.”
