Hi! I'm Shannon

I help connect and fill in the gaps of what is missing in your business, transforming your business into an aligned, joyful, (and protected) entity!

I'm a visionary Lawyer Who Loves Empowering Entrepreneurs

with legal knowledge

so they can focus on building their business with peace of mind.

Heartsong Chakra Framework

I'm just like you....

I've built and closed multiple businesses, and I've experienced the ups and downs of entrepreneurship. I know what it feels like to be alone, doing difficult things and not knowing exactly what I'm doing.

I know what it's like to feel frustrated with all of the bits and pieces of running a business and knowing you need to have certain things done, but just not knowing how or what to do about them.

You know that everything is connected, so why have you not connected your spiritual self with your business?

We are here to guide you to integrate the two so you can have an aligned business and life.

Intuitive Insightful Legal

I'm not your ordinary lawyer... I blend all of my holistic knowledge with my legal knowledge to help my clients be better entrepreneurs, and to help them take their businesses to new heights. One of my signature sayings is "listen to your Heartsong!" which means, follow what your heart says for you to do, your passion, what makes your heart sing. My Heartsong is educating and empowering my clients with understanding how the legal aspects of their business can help them feel more fulfilled in their business and give them the tools they need to move their vision forward.

I'm a serial entrepreneur, mom, holistic practitioner and cancer survivor. In my previous career I was a multi-media designer and video editor in the music industry. I made cool art videos and took some awesome photos with famous people and musicians.


I live between the worlds of the logical left and the creative right and can help others merge the two to see the interconnectedness. I can help you truly embody your business and to feel both aligned and protected at the same time.

Protecting Your Business Puts your business into Alignment

I'm a big fan of meditation and balancing my chakras. While sitting on a beach watching the waves, I started thinking about how a business is considered an entity. My thinking then went to, if a business is an entity, doesn't it have a chakra system? That's how the Heartsong Chakra Framework™ was born. I use this tool to explain how various legal aspects can help you build and protect your business. I want you to understand how trademarks are essential for your brand ("all about me" in the solar plexus chakra) and having ways to protect them such as registering them ("foundations" in the root chakra) and licensing them ("relationships" in the heart chakra) are interconnected.

We are here to make things simple and enjoyable by

guiding you through the HeartSong Chakra Framework™ to develop a unique-to-you business and legal strategy.
