In addition to being Bella and Rayna's mommy, Shannah is the founder of Live Like Bella®. In 2013 while Bella lay in a coma, it was Shannah's online passionate plea for people to go out and serve others and #LiveLikeBella that captured the hearts and minds of millions across the globe. Shannah served the Miami Dade County Public School District as a Special Education teacher for many years until caring for Bella caused her to step down. In addition to her role as Founder and Vice Chair of Live Like Bella®, Shannah is an entrepreneur and frequently volunteers for many worthy causes in her community. She also councils and guides new families diagnosed with cancer. Shannah earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education from the University of Florida, and holds certifications in Health & Nutrition from The Dr. Sears Wellness Institute and in medical coding and billing from Florida Gulf Coast University. Shannah resides in Miami with her husband Raymond, daughter Rayna and their 5 dogs.
Shannah's favorite way to #LiveLikeBella: Show compassion and see a show
