From humble beginnings growing up in Geraldton, Shannon has achieved career success whilst being a single mum of two sons, and juggling work and study. Over the years, she missed many family functions and celebrations to achieve personal and professional success.
Shannon has faced and overcome many challenges on her journey, including the loss of her parents.
Grief and loss in Aboriginal families is confounding and debilitating. Shannon faced these challenges head-on, using her strength and motivation to take responsibility for her personal trials as well as manage a professional career as a psychologist. This example of how hard work can produce outcomes demonstrates Shannon’s commitment to achieve – regardless of the barriers and obstacles.
Shannon is proud of having raised two sons as a single mum, with daily help and a solid commitment from her role-model brother, Sean McNeair. Both of Shannon’s sons are now successful, respectful young men with careers in the mining industry.
Shannon stays socially and emotionally strong for her community by actively participating in sport and family activities like going home to Shark Bay to reconnect, recharge and relax, and enjoying daily life with her two little Maltese Shih Tzu dogs.
Shannon’s story of both professional achievement and the ability to raise two strong young men; her sons, is inspiring and motivational for the next generation of young professionals and anyone wanting to achieve their goals; whatever they may be.
