Shannon Adamcik, 
LMSW

Director of Social Services

Shannon has a Masters degree in social work from Boise State University and currently licensed in Idaho. Shannon lost her mother to cancer in August, 2000. Her mother’s passing was a life changing experience and her first introduction to hospice. She learned through that experience that every day of life matters, as does dignity, self respect and personal choice. Shannon has been a hospice social worker for the last six years. She feels it has been an honor and a privilege to serve individuals and families during this intimate phase of life.
