Seeing the positive effects CDS services has on families and individuals with disabilities is Shannon’s main motivator. Shannon has a brother with Autism and watched her parents go through the struggles of raising him without much help, so she understands the importance of her team doing their part as quick and efficiently as possible in order to meet the needs of the clients and families we serve.
