About Shanisty

I’m Shanisty. Yes, that is my real name. I’m a wife and mother of three small hooligans. Before I started collecting children (totally kidding), I spent 10 years of my life behind the news desk and chasing stories in the field. Our family moved many times during my TV News career. From West Virginia to Birmingham to Lexington to Savannah…we finally landed in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

We have three children Luke, Eden and Adam. The kids consume every last ounce of my energy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Thanks for sticking around and exploring my site. I’d love to hear from you! Is there something you’d like me to write about? Maybe you have a story idea or a topic that needs a voice. Or maybe you’re interested in a collaboration or are searching for a public speaker. OR maybe you want to tell me about your favorite wine… no matter what it is, shoot me an email here.

I am tired, but I promise to respond.

    We’ve led parallel lives. I worked in TV for 10 years, mostly reporting. I had my children 16 months apart and moved five times in five years. We left the traditional south for Florida. Thought I’d say hello again. Came back after reading your #soblessed post. 😀
