Shannon Hutchison

I grew up in Oviedo Florida and am a proud Florida native. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a degree in Elementary Education, and I am currently teaching 4th grade. I am also working toward my Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling with a focus on trauma therapy at Asbury Theological Seminary. I have 3 beautiful, sassy daughters: Jubilee (3rd grade), Clementine (1st grade) and Amelia (Kindergarten). Because of the pandemic, we are currently homeschooling, so 2020 has been an adventure! I enjoy being outside, good coffee, and the theme parks.

Central Florida is severely lacking in rape/sexual assault education, resources, counseling and services. I would seek to set up a Non Profit that walks along rape survivors of all genders, races and religions from beginning to end, to try and curb the number of PTSD cases and suicides that happen from the trauma of rape and sexual assault. I am working on producing education, advocacy and support for sexual assault and rape survivors in Central Florida called SOAR.
