In today’s show, Episode 23, we’re incredibly honored to have two-time Olympic medalist, Shannon Happe, as our guest.
Shannon’s last name is actually pronounced like “happy” and it’s certainly fitting for her personality. Shannon is fun and brings a fresh, but real, perspective about motherhood to the show.
Shannon’s passion for skiing, especially the moguls, began at a very young age thanks to the fact that she grew up in the mountains around Lake Tahoe.
Shannon was a member of the United States Olympic Ski Team for 12 years, won two Olympic medals, and has multiple World Cup victories under her belt but, she says that nothing has been more challenging, or rewarding, than being a mother.
Today, Shannon opens up about the isolation she felt after becoming a mom, what brought her back to herself and helped her feel connected again, her struggle with having a miscarriage, her uncertainty about having another child, why women should stop telling each other motherhood is “hard”, and the one thing she wants all mothers to know.
Shannon also talks about her upcoming business venture that is going to “help bring inspiration and movement” to the corporate world.
