HI! I'M SHANNON.
I've had hearing loss my whole life. But, it wasn't until 2015 that I found out I was going blind too -- hooray! I have Usher Syndrome type 2A. I am also a proud cochlear implant recipient. I created this blog to discuss the issues associated with vision loss, hearing loss and deaf blindness.
I graduated from the University of Oregon's School of Journalism and Communication in 2012 and have a background in public relations. My career has taken me from Portland, Oregon to Boulder, Colorado, to Seattle, Washington to Denver, Colorado. I'm currently based in Hot Springs, Arkansas where I live with my husband and our mini goldendoodle, Colfax.
