Shannon Ames selected for her outstanding leadership and commitment within her profession

It gives me great pleasure to present Shannon with this important honor. I applaud her for using her expertise to build a successful business enterprise.

The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Shannon Ames as a 2015-2016 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in business. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 700,000 members and over 200 operating Local Chapters.

“It gives me great pleasure to present Shannon with this important honor,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “I applaud her for using her expertise to build a successful business enterprise.”

As a busy mother and professional woman, Shannon Ames knows only too well the difficulty of finding healthy, nutritious snacks the whole family will enjoy. So when her friend Jen Keegan, Founder of Cocoa Santé LC, a company that manufactures all-natural, hot cocoa blends, was looking for a business partner, Ms. Ames needed little convincing to join her as Co-Owner.

Currently available in five unique blends, Cocoa Santé’s high-quality organic cocoa is sourced from cooperative farms in the Dominican Republic and South America. “These blends are inspired by cocoa’s rich global history and made with only quality ingredients,” said Ms. Ames. Cocoa Santé instant hot cocoas is available at grocery stores, specialty food shops and online.

A graduate of Boston University Questrom School of Business, Ms. Ames has an M.B.A. in Public and Non-Profit Management. She uses her knowledge of business development, marketing, project management, logistics, strategic communications and public relations to expertly manage the day-to-day operations of the rapidly growing business. From finance and budgeting to strategizing and marketing to simply handing out free samples to consumers, Ms. Ames works tirelessly to expand the business and spread the word about Cocoa Santé’s delicious, nutritious hot cocoa products.

Awards & Accomplishments: M.B.A., Boston University Questrom School of Business, Public and Non-profit Management; President of Board of Trustees at Waldorf School of Lexington
