Shanna is a true “Native Vermonter” and is originally from the Upper Valley. When not at work, she enjoys hiking with her two rescue dogs (Rezz and Bodie), riding her Peloton, and spending time with her family, friends, and boyfriend.
“Treatment with Dr. Shanna was life-changing. I really appreciate her skill, expertise, and how she brings such a high level of compassion and humor to her care. You can tell she deeply cares about her patients and it comes through in her treatment. Shanna is so effective in her explanations of exercises and anatomy, which led me to understanding aspects of health I had wondered about for years. I would highly recommend Shanna to anyone. She is an asset to Cioffredi and her profession in general.” -S.W.
“Over time, more and more of the activities I enjoyed became possible again because I was no longer afraid of leakage. Shanna is the best and I would totally recommend her to anyone dealing with incontinence issues!” -Dayna Wood
“I came in feeling pretty down about the issues I was having – the constipation and leakage were so bothersome and I was worried that it was something I couldn’t improve. Shanna was so nice, so upbeat, and so confident and ready with a plan that I felt better after one visit. Within one week my symptoms were almost completely reversed, and I was learning more and more about my body every day. I even enjoyed coming each week to my visit! (And given the unknown of what to expect when my doctor recommended the therapy, this was a huge and great surprise)” -Jenna Lyall
