2017 Woman Entrepreneur of the Year: Shannon Simonelli

About Shannon

Shannon is the founder and creator of the Treasure Map to Your Luminous Life system, an integrative, therapeutic dance, movement and art therapy based personal and professional development program. Her system focuses on serving women who are serious about getting support to create the next phase of their life and work. Ideal clients are 30 – 60+ who have been on a spiritual path yet still struggle with self-doubt, self-judgment, or navigating life transitions with clarity, confidence and authentic truth.

“I am honored and delighted to be receiving this award. It is a very unexpected acknowledgement, where none was expected. The service, support and encouragement I have received from Deb Bilbao and the WBC has been exceptional and beyond what I would have been able to invest in as a fee for service offer. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making this highly valuable resource available to women in our community who have so much to give.”

– Shannon Simonelli, Ph.D.
