Shannon Talbot is a former corporate executive turned Wellness Coach, Speaker and Writer on a mission to help others live happier, healthier and more present lives. For 17 years, Shannon climbed the corporate ladder in the financial services & advertising industries, working for companies such as Scotiabank, BMO, PC Bank and Publicis.

Shannon excelled at leading teams, managing complex projects and building strong relationships. Due to Shannon Talbot roles and travelling extensively, Shannon found herself prioritizing her career and family over her personal well-being. Over time, she found herself completely burnt out. Shannon also struggled with anxiety, lack of self-confidence, and guilt from trying to juggle it all.

When Shannon’s then five-year-old son spent a total of 31 days at Sick Kids Hospital, Shannon Talbot had a wake-up call.  She realized how important health and happiness are and set out on a journey to find them.

Shannon Talbot completely revamped her lifestyle across all areas – physical, emotional and mental.  She learned to prioritize her well-being and, in doing so, saw the positive impact it can have on productivity, balance and happiness in the workplace and at home.

Shannon Talbot left the corporate world to become a Wellness Coach and start her own company, Path to Presence, to support other busy professionals to live happier, healthier & more present lives.

She has an MBA from the Schulich School of Business, a Bachelor of International Business from Carleton University, is a Certified Health and Life Coach from the Health Coach Institute and has worked across North and Latin America.
