Kimberly Shannon is a wife, a mother, an editor, a writer ... She is always working to find the perfect balance¹! After Kimberly received her bachelor’s degree in Journalism, she worked on two master’s degree programs (Creative Writing, and Marriage and Family Therapy). At various times in her life she has signed up to study Naturopathy, only to back out at the last minute, and humored the idea of returning full-time to the world of dance. Kimberly has also started 10 different children’s books, each containing about 4-6 chapters before the project was abandoned². Kimberly gave birth to her beautiful daughter, Hannah, in the midst of all her aspirations (also known as June 2007). It wasn’t long before she realized that Hannah was a mini-version of herself, and the greatest adventure began (also known as Karma³). “You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” - Mae West ¹ Has not found perfect balance yet. ² Is currently working on 11th. ³ Sorry Majah.
