"She has a natural ability to continue discussions around our strengths"
The SARC team benefited from working with Shaunna. We got to know each other better and it really gave us an opportunity to appreciate each other's strengths. Shaunna is very professional, enthusiastic, friendly and a great facilitator. She has a natural ability to continue discussions around our strengths and always had something positive to say about each of us even when we didn’t see a strength as a strength. I would recommend her to any organization looking to help with team building.

"Shaunna is honest and is herself. When working with her, you work with her, not a tailored version she creates to meet your preferences."
Shaunna has a lot of experience and knowledge to share. She facilitates open discussions with her low key attitude and is easy to talk to. She led our women's roundtable in a great conversation on power dynamics in the workplace, and provided some potentially though-provoking reflection for some of our attendees. Shaunna is honest and is herself. When working with her, you work with her, not a tailored version she creates to meet your preferences.

"Our team of 20 still references our time with Shaunna at least once a week."
I can truly say that our team uses the learnings of Strengths Finders and the tools that Shaunna gave us daily. What felt like personal conversations previously, we are able to have respectful dialogue about what drives our feelings, reactions and needs as large, cross-functional team. If you are looking for a way to overcome communication and relationship barriers across a team of diverse thinkers, I can't recommend Shaunna more highly. 6 months later, our team of 20 still references our time with Shaunna at least once a week.

"She also helped me discover how to channel and express (my gifts) in my life, how to shift perspective and apply the new knowledge and skill set in an effective way."
I first met Shaunna at the Burbank airport waiting to board a flight to PDX. In the months prior I'd been considering working with a coach. I immediately felt drawn to Shaunna's warmth, intelligence, eloquence, and focus. She has a way of engaging that tells the story of an incredibly strong person who totally walks her talk with passion and enthusiasm. After discovering her work as a coach, the choice to work with her was not only obvious, but had an overtone of divine serendipity.
As it turned out, this was one of the best decisions I made that entire year. Not only did Shaunna help me understand my gifts, she also helped me discover how to channel and express them in my life, how to shift perspective and apply the new knowledge and skill set in an effective way. Shaunna's knowledge, strategic thinking, sincerity, enthusiasm, integrity and ability to listen deeply make her more than a coach. She's one of those rare breeds of people who truly found her path, and stands out above the rest to be placed into the realm of extraordinary

"After working with Shaunna, I was able to confidently seek professional positions with deep knowledge and insight into what I wanted from my career, based on my talents and what makes me tick."
In the past, I have never utilized career coaching services and was somewhat skeptical as to how it could benefit me. I considered myself strong, confident, productive and determined, however, as I entered a new stage of life: re-entering the paid workforce after raising my two children, I decided to give coaching try. The minute Shaunna and I started working together, it became apparent how incredibly helpful, insightful and professional she is, and how effective her program was going to be. We immediately connected in a deeper level as we dove into my inner self, with all of my various strengths and challenges. She brought to the surface characteristics that make me who I am, including some strengths that I didn’t realize existed. Shaunna helped me realize characteristics that I thought were strong, but explored how they could hinder my professional and personal growth. By fully understanding these strengths, I have become aware of them in action, in my everyday life. After working with Shaunna, I was able to confidently seek professional positions with deep knowledge and insight into what I wanted from my career, based on my talents and what makes me tick. I was recently hired at a local, innovative non-profit and have honed in on that work/home life balance that can be so hard to attain. I would highly recommend Shaunna Levy to anyone looking to re-enter the workforce, make that career change, or to anyone looking to gain that extra knowledge of oneself to improve everyday well-being.
