We are happy to introduce Shannon, a woman who has a multitude of talents. She’s a socila media influencer and an author. Shannon’s debut book, Grief, revolves around the story of 5 people.
We asked Shannon a few questions to further understand her personal life and her new book. We hope that you’d enjoy reading her interview.

Stewart, MSN, RN, GFNP, CCRN is a December 5th, 2018 graduate from South University’s Family Nurse Practitioner program with over seventeen and one half (17 ½) years of clinical experience in critical care settings as a critical care Registered Nurse and holds CCRN certification. Out of the 3,000,000+ Registered Nurses in the United States, only roughly 2%-3% hold this advanced elite certification, truly making her an authority and subject matter expert in critical care and healthcare in general.

Shannon is currently growing her brand as an Instagram and social media micro influencer under the branding of Daredevil Bama Gurl and White Coat Woman. She is also a writer and has her first book on pre-order on Amazon.com, called “GRIEF”. Further, she has a children’s book series in development called “Eureka Teaches” which will focus on life lessons for younger audiences. Finally, she is in discussions regarding curating content as an interviewer at major sporting events.

Describe yourself in five words
Thrilling, Intelligent, Beautiful, Loyal, Resolute
What fact about yourself would really surprise people?
I have jumped off of the tallest building in Las Vegas (855 feet).
How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
I pray and meditate
What scares you the most?
Failure, so I am driven.
What makes you happiest?
Why do you write?
I write to release the stories floating around in my head.
Have you always enjoyed writing?
No. I used to not know how to complete a story because they came in fragments. Now I start whatever story is there and move back and forth between them.
What books did you love growing up?
Goodnight Moon written by Margaret Wise Brown
Location and life experiences can really influence writing, tell us where you grew up and where you now live?
I grew up in Ozark, Alabama and currently live in Tampa, Florida
Is your family supportive? Do your friends support you?
My husband is supportive.
What else do you do, other than write?
I am a social media micro-influencer, model, entrepreneur, speaker, Nurse Practitioner and a CCRN certified Registered Nurse
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I would live in Hawaii when there is no hurricane season and maybe Tokyo, Japan
Every writer has their own idea of what a successful career in writing is, what does success in writing look like to you?
You are successful at writing if you are having fun doing it and at least one other person appreciates you for your craft. That won’t make you rich but that’s how I define a successful writer.
Tell us about your new book? Why did you write it?
Grief is a short story I have on pre-order on Amazon. I write a different take on the 5 stages of grief that we typically go through multiple times in life. I sensationalize each stage a bit to make it entertaining to keep people’s attention in today’s world but at the end of each of the 5 chapters I add some White Coat Woman education. I also have very sensational 1 minute book trailer to peak the curiosity of people who watch it.
If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone dead or alive, who would you ask?
I would have dinner with Michelle Obama. She is highly educated, beautiful, and an accomplished woman. She is also very cool and doesn’t have a problem being herself.
