Shannon Power, LCSW, ACHP-SW obtained her BSW and MSW degrees at the University of Georgia. She has returned to pursue her PhD with support of UGA’s Presidential Graduate Fellow award. Shannon began her career as an oncology social worker and soon moved to Indiana, where she partnered with an interdisciplinary team to begin a hospital-based palliative care program. Five years of clinical practice helped her narrow her research interest to aging, specifically aging in place. She is passionate about increasing older adults’ quality of life through technology-based solutions and virtual therapeutic techniques. Her goal is to leverage technology to help the aging population, informing policy and improving healthcare access and equity. Shannon obtained her Clinical Social Worker license and Advanced Certified Hospice and Palliative Care Social Worker designation while working in Indiana. Additionally, she gained teaching experience at her local community college as an adjunct faculty instructor in Human Services. She is dedicated to progress in the social work field through research, education, and advocacy.
