Shannan’s career with Seniors started in Bartlett, TN 20 years ago when she and her family moved back to Tennessee from St. Louis Mo. She had always been in a sales role but answered an ad for a Community Development Director position at an assisted living down the street from her home. She knew nothing about the industry and had never been in an assisted living before and fell in love immediately. She started doing outside professional development and quickly moved into a position where she was marketing 2 communities in the area. Her passion for the industry grew until she was working in a community and traveling to assist, train and troubleshoot other communities within the company.
After a merge of two larger companies and a short time marketing hospice, Shannan left the industry for a few years and pursued other sales leadership positions. In these positions the focus was leadership, personal development and sales. The years spent doing this gave Shannan her desire for personal growth, leading others to be the best version of themselves and her increased love for Christ.
In February 2020 Shannan was given the amazing opportunity, through a friend and former co-worker, to join the Watercrest family. She felt like Watercrest was the answer to everything she had been looking for. They felt like a merge between her passion for senior living and her love for serving and leading others.
Shannan is married to Lee, the boy next door, literally he was her neighbor. They live in Somerville TN and have been together for 34 years, have two amazing children, a son Boomer, a daughter Hunter and a beautiful daughter in law, Rebecca. Boomer is an agent with Farm Bureau and Rebecca is an attorney in Martin, TN. Hunter owns her own salon in Cordova, TN and has a spoiled dog named Izzy. Shannan’s hobbies include anything DIY, refinishing furniture in her shop when she isn’t traveling, playing her cello, learning the piano and drinking wine.
