Shannon has more than 20 years of experience specializing in skincare. In her Midtown Manhattan office, she offers advanced esthetic treatments to address both anti-aging and acne and nutritional counseling, as well as training, mentorship, and apprenticeship opportunities for licensed professionals.
Shannon received her undergraduate degrees from the University of Georgia in Finance and in French. She completed her esthetics license in Georgia at the Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics in 2006. She obtained a Master’s of Science from the University of Western States in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine in 2022, where she focused on atopic dermatitis and the gut-skin connection.
Shannon has worked in all aspects of the beauty industry, including with dermatologists and plastic surgeons, as well as in high-end luxury spas. She was the lead esthetician and regional skincare trainer at Exhale Spa in New York City, where she worked for ten years. She left Exhale to work with Georgia Louise in the New York City atelier, eventually leaving that position in order to return to graduate school in 2020.
Shannon aims to help her clients address skin concerns stemming from nutritional deficiencies and digestive issues, as well as helping both solo estheticians and recent esthetics graduates build successful businesses that they love.
Shannon has been a miracle worker for me. My skin has always been a subject of much frustration in my life, and she has alleviated so many of my concerns, including acne, and aging.
Shannon’s comprehensive knowledge and thoughtful demeanor kept me coming back on subsequent trips. Now that I’ve relocated to the city, I’m thrilled to be able to utilize her expertise on a regular basis.
Shannon truly has a passion for skincare and is knowledgeable about treating a variety of skin types. She takes her time to get to know you and your skin and what kind of treatment will suit you best.
My interest in skin care peaked when I was in college, and I struggled with acne. In my frustration, I started researching products and ingredients in order to solve my problem. The more I learned, the more I wanted to learn. I read every book in my library.
I quit my office job to attend the Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics to get my license, and my hobby turned into a career.
