Meet Shannon


Hi!  I'm Shannon Talbot, and I'm the Founder & CEO of Path to Presence Wellness Coaching, a wellness company built to inspire and support people to live happier, healthier and more present lives.  

I love spending time with family and friends and am extremely passionate about travelling, kitchen dance parties, reading, writing and learning. I’m an extreme optimist who never lets obstacles get in the way. Instead, I look for an alternate path. I have also struggled with anxiety, stress, burn-out, lack of self-confidence, and guilt while lying to myself about my true Me. Struggles very few people know I have. Struggles that I had kept inside for a long time.

For 17 years, I climbed the corporate ladder in the financial services & advertising industries. Due to my roles and travelling extensively, I prioritized my career and my family over my well-being. Over time I found myself exhausted and stressed. It wasn't until I focused on improving my overall well-being that I truly saw the positive impact on productivity, balance and happiness, both at home and at work.

I became a Certified Health & Life Coach to work with busy professionals who are burnt out from juggling it all.  I help them learn to prioritize their well-being to have more energy and patience to do the things they love while still being successful, personally and professionally. 

As English novelist Rose Tremain said, “Life is not a dress rehearsal.” We only have one life, and I for sure do not want to waste it.
