Shannon Monticciolo-Davis was raised in a small knit community called St. Clair Shores, Michigan. Though she loved her small community, she had visions of a bigger community she acted upon. After graduating from Michigan State University and marrying her husband Joe, she moved to Prosper, Texas. Using her small town personality and her gift to gab, she spent 10 years consulting companies and showing them how to grow their businesses. Through hard work, Shannon was able to become a director of business development at a world-renowned ballet school. Though Shannon misses her small town back home, she has established her own community through others that have been adopted.
