Client Service Associate and Digital Marketing Representative
Shannen Merrick grew up in mid-Missouri and earned her degree from The University of Missouri at Kansas City. She is one of the best to look for Financial Advisors Kansas City. She and her husband Aaron, along with their three children—Caden (17), Cohen (14), and Cami (12)—live an active life in Overland Park. They also have two dogs and a guinea pig to round out their family.
Her favorite pastimes include attending Royals and Chiefs games and vacationing with her family. As an avid sports fan, Shannen Merrick not only enjoys coaching her daughter in basketball, but she’s also the assistant girls’ varsity basketball coach at St. James Academy. If she’s not at work she’s most likely attending some sort of sporting activity.
My greatest accomplishment has been raising my kids to be people of service. I truly believe in living by example and even though we live a crazy, busy life, we still find time to volunteer and give back to the community. We do this individually and as a family. I have been a Meals on Wheels driver for almost 6 years and whenever possible the kids come with me and help deliver meals. All three of them volunteer at nursing homes and various non-profit organizations around the city including Giving the Basics, Harvesters, Blessings Abound and Catholic Charities. There’s no greater accomplishment then seeing your children give voluntarily of their time.
