About Shannon

Born and raised in the BC Interior, Shannon joined Pivot Point in the role of Regional Manager for the Thompson/Okanagan region March 2023. When people ask where she is from, her response may be ” from which stage in my life?” Shannon has planted roots in Lumby, Vernon, Golden, Revelstoke and currently resides in Salmon Arm with her family.

During her career, Shannon’s primary focus was towards mental health and inclusive employment. This led her to spearhead numerous programs for adults with diverse abilities including a Customized Employment program. She proudly supported individuals to learn targeted life skills, job readiness and created opportunities to improve their self esteem and overall quality of life. She valued creating connections within her community and beyond, building and fostering relationships, and advocating for human rights.

Shannon is fervent about social justice, mental health, and values strong ethics. She stands true to integrity, honesty, while thinking objectively to help find solutions to whatever life throws at us. She is passionate about assisting others on their personal journey and selflessly empowers others to embrace their own self discovery. She takes pride in celebrating their personal success, creating a turning point where they can realize their dreams of positive change.

About Services in the Okanagan

Pivot Point is excited about the growth of our team in the Okanagan region, extending services from Armstrong and Lumby to Osoyoos and Princeton where we offer in-person, online, or hybrid support.

Pivot Point’s Adult Services in the Okanagan are active with Life Skills Workers supporting adults to utilize community services, develop skills to increase their independence and to get exercise and fresh air. Additionally, Shannon and her team deliver comprehensive clinical services to youth through programs like School Age ABA, Teen Transition PATH, and online groups such as PEERS, Minecraft, and Job Skills.

Pivot Point has recently partnered with CLBC to host the LIFE Service. L.I.F.E. stands for Learning, Inclusion, Friendship and Employment. CLBC staff, individuals, families, and service providers designed this service together.

Addressing the growing demand for support in the region, Shannon and the team are strategically planning additional services for families and caregivers.

Our Learning Centers are expanding throughout the province, and we’ve been hearing from families and stakeholders about the demand for a Community Classroom in Vernon which we’re tentatively planning to open in September 2024. This classroom will offer a safe, inclusive space for children to learn at their own pace, addressing emotional and behavioral needs on a daily basis by meeting each individual where they are.
