“I had much more relevant experience coming out of college than the average graduate,” she says, “My resume was much more compelling and I had lots to talk about during job interviews.”


After graduating, Shannan secured a job as a case worker with a traditional Big Brothers Big Sisters program. Shannan then focused on completing her Masters of Science in Social Work, which she received from the Kent School of Social Work at the University of Louisville.  After having children, and working in other areas of social work, Shannan started working at Home Health in 2008. She works part time four days a week doing medical social services and case management for Medicaid waiver patients.
