About Shanisty

I’m Shanisty. Yes, that is my real name. I’m a wife and mother of three small hooligans, with one more on the way due in September, 2019. Before I started collecting children (totally kidding), I spent a decade 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.

When I’m not chasing children, I own a social media marketing company, White Barn Media.

Maybe you found me through my RSV Awareness Advocacy, or maybe you found me through my viral article Will you Be My Mom Friend… no matter how you landed here, 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.

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. 😀
