Name: Shannon Janine’ Webb, MBA, RHIA, CDI-P

Family: I am the proud mother of Montana Webb Jackson, currently a junior at Glynn Academy. Montana is progressing well academically and excelling as a National/International Open Division Volleyball player.

Years in the Golden Isles: 20 lovely years.

School: East Carolina University in Greenville, N.C.

Occupation: Currently serving as the system director of medical records and resource management at Southeast Georgia Health System. As a veteran of the United States Air Force and Reserves, I am extremely proud of our new Veteran’s Park in downtown Brunswick.

Tell us about your favorite things to do in your free time: I absolutely love live music of all genres. Also, as a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. for greater than 25 years, I have recently joined our Brunswick Alumnae Chapter. Our sorority provides many volunteer and enrichment opportunities. Lastly, I am the ultimate sports fan. I enjoy all competitive sports. The Golden Isles is extremely fortunate to have natives well-represented from high school to professional competition in several sports activities. I spend much of my free time rooting each of them on.

Describe a perfect Saturday for you in the Golden Isles: A perfect Saturday for me in the Golden Isles is enjoying a delicious brunch and watching a college football game while I listen to live music. I have come to realize that we truly live in paradise.

How did you get started/involved in the medical records and resource management field? Hospitality was always my comfort zone. Helping others achieve goals, acquire a need or simply have happy moments brings me joy. Early in my life, I was fortunate to be a waitress. Waitressing allowed me to meet many people from all walks of life. In doing so, you learn many things about people but most of all you develop a sense of compassion. Hospitality is a large component in the delivery of health care. While attending ECU I attended an allied health symposium. During the symposium, I found a home right in the middle of health care delivery, medical records administration. I am humbled and proud to serve Glynn and surrounding counties in quality health care close to home!

A local you admire: David Boland Sr., (deceased) native of St. Simons Island. David was a graduate of The Citadel. This gentleman had years of financial experience, wise beyond anyone I had ever met, giving of himself and his knowledge and most of all compassionate to all. I had the pleasure to work many years with Mr. Boland before his passing. As a young professional hungry to learn the financial aspects of health care, Mr. Boland never turned me away. He recognized my advancements, but most importantly he helped me improve my shortcomings. He was a powerful, positive influence in our community and to me all the years I knew him.

What is one thing every visitor must do before leaving the Golden Isles? As a North Carolina native, over the years I have welcomed many visitors to the Golden Isles. The one must do things is to overindulge in the best fresh shrimp ever and take in the beautiful scenery over our lovely rivers and ocean views.

Favorite landmark in the Golden Isles: “The nook” is a public beach access adjacent to the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort. “The nook” is an amazing place to view the best sunrise and sunset over the ocean.

What would you say is the most rewarding part of your job? The most rewarding part of my job is the opportunity to help others. I am blessed to be in a position that helps patients during their time with us, after their time with us, and help their families as well. Part of my job is to ensure patients’ needs are met during their stay and after they leave. The opportunity I have to give back to my community and make a difference in a patient’s day is the most rewarding part of my job.
