Shannone Pettie is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing clinical services to a wide array of populations since 2001. Shannone is originally from New Haven, CT and earned her Masters degree in Social Work from SCSU, and is currently pursuing a doctoral degree from Fordham University. In her experiences in social work, interactions with disparity, stigmas, and the lack of resources were common place. Having worked in both the public and private sectors, Shannone witnessed a climate among her colleagues early on in her career. Despite their organizational structure, budget and available resources, some mental health professionals were struggling to provide quality services. This observed trend inspired Shannone to explore the work life balance of providers and dedicate herself to raising awareness about the relationship between provider wellness and efficacy.
Shannone works full time providing clinical services for hospice patients at the end of life, she consults with a private practice group, and she also supports adolescents with ASD. Shannone is the proud mother of two children, and enjoys family time, traveling, maintaining her self care, and cooking (baked macaroni and cheese is a family favorite). Shannone highly values the mission, vision, and individualized approach that Coram Deo Recovery offers and looks forward to contributing her time and expertise to this program.
Taylor is also an active participant in the Connecticut chapter of LEAD, an organization aimed to facilitate the Leadership, Education, Advocacy, and Development of women. Her role at the bank has allowed her the privilege to work with the New Britain community in the past and she is looking forward to continuing to serve the community. She is a member of the West Hartford Chamber, and Wet Hartford Rotary Club! In her free time, Taylor enjoys spending time in nature, reading about politics, and volunteering in the community.
