Shannon is an entrepreneur who has participated in numerous ventures over the past ten years. Her resume includes experience in banking, Economic Development, marketing, and advertising.

I have spent the last year with Shannon as my business consultant. At first I wasn't really sure what a business consultant did. I had a ton of great ideas, but never knew how to complete them. This last year I have taken my goals and sat down with Shannon and created a plan. One by one each step is completed with a process we designed for my business. If you feel like you're missing the key to your success, you're missing Shannon. She will be your compass to find your way.

Shannon helped me embrace my core values and vision, as well as create a strategy to build Lakes Area Celebrations into the growing resource for the community it is becoming. I would recommend Du Nord Consulting to any business looking for help in creating a plan with action steps to turn their big dreams into achievements. It’s impossible to meet unset goals! Set your target and work hard to hit it.
