About The Owner
Shanna started her own business as a care manager in 2013. She knows first-hand the struggles owners of small businesses and care managers go through.
How is Shanna qualified to speak about Health Care Management Software?
At the beginning of her practice, like many others, Shanna was disorganized and had many brochures in a filing system, or sitting in a box on the floor. Business cards were in a stack on her desk.
When she made referrals, she was leafing through those cards and brochures to find the resource she needed.
She liked computers and systems, so she tried to put it all in an excel spreadsheet, which was time-consuming to say the least.
Shanna knew there had to be a better way. She asked one of her friends who was a developer to develop a software system that would organize companies, where she could attach the appropriate contacts to that company.
The list of companies could also have brochures, pamphlets, education material and referral forms attached if needed. She could organize the companies by category.
After this was developed, Shanna was hooked. Whenever there was extra money in the business, Shanna would build out new features she needed.
Eventually, the system was one of the best out there, in her opinion! Other care managers would come to her at conferences and in networking groups to ask what system she used. She started showing her system to others who were interested in purchasing it.
My Junna Launched
In October 2018, Shanna took the leap of faith and launched her software program for other’s to use. Currently, My Junna Software is used in over 21 states across the country!
Shanna’s passion has always been to help others, first as a nurse, then as a care manager caring for others, and now she has found her true calling to mentor and help other small business owners succeed by providing them an easy to use system that makes unorganized, hectic days become more organized and manageable!
Why My Junna?
People often ask what the name “My Junna” stands for. When Shanna was a young girl of 10 years old, she met her best friend Julie. Shanna and Julie dreamed of owning their own business (which she was later told is not a typical little girl dream back then). Of course, back then it was going to be a beauty salon or clothing business or other fun shops! Julie and Shanna picked out the name “Junna” combining their names and imagining that on a billboard off the streets in Ohio. Shanna hopes all of your dreams come true as well as you persue your passion in life!
As you can see, Shanna is uniquely qualified to help you understand everything you need to know to succeed as a Health Care Case Manager!

Shanna serves as a Board member of CGWoman Empowerment Africa.
CGWE stands for C.G. Women’s Empowerment, in honor of the Founder’s Grandmother, Cawwaaqe Guuttatta, and the thousands of women like her in Oromia, Ethiopia, who are systematically denied rights and resources, making it impossible for them to achieve economic security.
Through the “Dabaree” process, CGWE seeks to come alongside these women to help provide long-term solutions to their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Shanna went to Ethiopia on a mission trip to teach about hygiene and administer medication for elephantiasis in 2015. She was so inspired by that experience Shanna and her husband are going back together in 2020 to further support and contribute.
