Let’s Work Together

A native of Richmond, VA, Shanna studied Theatre Arts at Livingstone College in Salisbury, NC and then Grambling State University in Grambling, LA. After leaving college she went back home to Richmond to raise her son. She went back to school in June of 2015 to obtain her degree in Business Administration from J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College and is expected to complete her studies in May of 2019.

Shanna currently works for the City of Richmond Parks and Recreation as a Recreation Instructor and in 2013 started blogging as a creative outlet. Her first blog was a personal finance blog entitled “me vs. DEBT” where she coronicled her journey to becoming debt free and then a motherhood blog entitled “Adventures in Single Mommyhood” where she chronicled her journey as a single mother. She started Minnie Roses in September of 2014 and rebranded in 2016 to Me and Minnie in honor of her late grandmother Minnie. She’s not quite ready to take the plunge into full time blogger but does no rule it out. She’s a regular style contributor on a local morning talk show based in Richmond.

In her spare time Shanna loves to vintage and antique shop, find estate sales and will hit the occasional flea market if it catches her eye! She a YouTube junkie, the occasional runner; like four times a year and spends the rest of her spare time trolling her pre teen son, because why not lol! She loves to cook, read and has a pretty impressive straw bag collection!
