image of Shannan PalmaA longtime foodie and DIY fanatic, Dr. Shannan Palma rarely has only one project going and thrives on giving her curiosity free rein. She’s an award-winning PhD, a strategic communications expert, and a small business owner. In her spare time, she makes clothing, furniture, and cakes; repeatedly injures herself running; rescues animals, and lives by a quote from Lois McMaster Bujold’s Miles Vorkosigan series: “I have a better idea. Wish to be yourself. To the hilt. Find out what you’re best at, and develop it. Hopscotch your weaknesses. There isn’t time for them.”

Palma is an experienced speaker and presenter at conferences and the Atlanta Film Festival. In 2012, she co-led Start Where You Are: A Self Discovery Retreat. From 2015-2017, she co-hosted the Whiskeyknitters podcast, available on iTunes and Stitcher.
