“Shannon constantly explores new avenues to enhance the success of our organization and is fully committed to any task she undertakes. She also has a knack for finding stories that showcase our organization’s successes. Her enthusiasm is contagious. She is ideal as both a leader and a colleague.”

Vivien Cook, Past President and Board member, Eventide Arts Inc. Dennis, MA

“Shannon is an inspired author who has the ability to not only observe life, but to "catch the vibes" of others; she understands people, their motives and needs. Shannon also dares to share her inner feelings with the community at large. Whether writing about personal dilemmas and/or frustrations, sensitive situations, quiet observations of the natural world, or hustle and bustle of everyday life, this writer is willing to bring the reader into her life and mind, thereby enabling one to readily identify with her situations and reactions. Her writings never seem to fail to be engaging.

As editor of a quarterly village newsletter, I can attest to the fact that articles by Shannon seldom need any modification or corrections. With her excellent command of the English language, she can be concise or descriptive, whichever is appropriate, but always in tune with the interests of the intended audience. “

She was able to frame the issues and concerns of our situation in a way that motivated and attracted community response. This led to the committee’s receipt of County grant money and an exceptional turn-out at the Dennis Port Revitalization Design Charrette”.

"I was very comfortable with Shannon interviewing my clients. She captured the feelings of these people in a very positive and emotional way. These customer success stories are a valuable marketing tool when we are talking to prospective clients. I was so satisfied that we are currently in the planning stages of having Shannon capture more customer success stories with a number of our clients for whom we have installed new oil and gas heating systems. I would highly recommend Shannon for these types of marketing tools.”

“We hired Shannon from Second Nature Gardenworks to help us design and install a very natural looking landscape at Saturday Farm. Saturday Farm has multiple houses and we wanted landscaped privacy between the houses that looked natural; as if it was always there. Also, as an artist and an herbalist, I wanted native plants and areas to display art.

Shannon delighted us with a beautiful, easy to maintain design, lovely plants, a reasonable price and an efficient installation. I also purchased her garden plan to reference long term and it is a piece of art.   Thank you Shannon; Harry and I are looking forward to working with you on our next project!”
