A former Registered Nurse born and raised in Manitoba Canada, Shannon Hancock has worked in intensive care, neurosurgery, and as an HIV nurse and sexual assault nurse examiner. Shannon also coordinated a large tuberculosis program on Baffin Island. Shannon spends a great deal of her time as a resource and advocate for nurses and women in need of support and/or assistance to navigate complex labour relations and regulatory processes. She has both personal and professional experiences with bullying and harassment and uses her many years of learning and skills to assist and support others facing various forms of harassment.

We are happy to have Shannon join our team and be a part of showing all professions, no one is alone, this happens in all professions, and help and hope is available!
