I can't resist my sweet tooth! Vanilla chai lattes & frosted donuts are my kryptonite


My two kiddos, my partner & myself live in a cute little rural town outside Chicago- and say very typical Midwestern things like "Ope", "Hey, guys" and "Yeah no, for sure.”


I’m a Harry Potter nerd and Enneagram 5w4 (the Philosopher)


Spending hours at Target with my BFF Joanna Gaines (she doesn't know we're BFF's yet, I'm keeping it on the DL) ... sounds like the best day ever


Bingeing Netflix, Korean dramas and rom-com novels make me happy!


Fun facts about shantÉ

What Past SMMI Mentees Have Said

"My biggest win since joining SMMSI was the technical recommendations, getting my head in the game to get organized and get with it! This program helped me get out of my way! lol I finally announced to the world that I was doing this...the psychological aspect about this was so KEY."


"SMMSI is such a successful program, I’ve gotten my mindset aligned to see wins in my business and also received so much knowledge to help align my business for growth while onboarding clients."


"When I wanted to quit or doubted myself Shanté and my fellow cohort members would not let me! I can always go back to our sessions when I need a reminder also. Between our weekly calls, the monthly alumni calls, and our chat I definitely felt and still feel welcomed, safe, and supported."


"I have onboarded several new clients and have several in the works which is really exciting especially because these are all clients that have been a great fit for me. This was a wonderful investment for myself and for my business and I highly recommend!"

"As I started to work with more clients, I wanted to make sure I was providing the best experience for them from the minute I onboard them to the minute I offboard them. Even though I've been in business for about two years, I just felt like I didn't have a good system down. Definitely recommend because now I have Shanté's whole method and I can literally just plug and go. It's made it easier for me to work on my business versus in my business. I wish this program was around when I was just starting out. It would have made things so much easier!"


"I decided to join because I really needed to streamline my processes. Just to get my onboarding process where it needed to be. I just want to say every meeting we had just surpassed every expectation. We went into so much detail inyo every system, every process, client acquisition. I cannot even tell you. So, if you're on the fence of joining, don't [be] - you will not regret it."


"Let me tell you, it has been life-changing for me - and I do mean life-changing because I was ready to throw in the towel. I was done. I couldn't figure out what I was doing. I felt like I was in an uphill battle. I had bought so many other courses... that I haven't finished. With the Incubator, the big difference was accountability. Shanté is there to cheer you on every step of the way, to guide you if you have questions. It has been this incredible resource of somebody who's there to really see you succeed."


"I love your candor and straight forward recommendations / ideas / suggestions /solutions. That's absolutely needed~ One of the best features of this program is that you are grounded, have a family and share your experiences and don't hold back."

"I felt there was a space for everyone which is crucial in a time where ageism in this industry is well and thriving. Thank you for creating a space for everyone!"

"Worth the price and more. I especially like the delivery of content. I would recommend to anyone, specifically those getting started, or in their first year who need fundamental support."

"The downloadable resources have been a game changer for me since I am more visual when it comes to retention."
