Shahndel was born in Sioux Falls, SD but through the years has lived in Wisconsin, Washington and Alaska.  The pull of Sioux Falls brought her back in 1993, where she helped her aging parents.  After they passed she stayed until July 2022.

Creativity and art have always been the drive behind her progress and she uses those very things to relax and lose track of time with.  Always looking for new and unique items to create, she sometimes comes up with pretty bizarre things, but not to worry, each treasure she creates is definitely unique and stunning.

Coming from a family heritage of writers, she also has written some pieces, one that was published in Mersyside Aquarist magazine in Mersyside, England and has made her proud. Currently, she is working on a memoir that she hopes will be of use to those who are caring for those with serious brain injuries from her personal experiences.  The book will be called This Shell Called Me by Cindy L. Hawley and will be published on Amazon electronically.

Shahndel has a son and a daughter, both born on June 15th, 15 years apart and has been married/divorced twice.  She is enjoying the single life now and at this point prefers it.
