Shannon Eickhoff was born in Harrisonburg, VA. She graduated from the College of William and Mary with a Biology major and Chemistry minor. She completed her PA degree from George Washington University in 2000. Thereafter she worked in an outpatient pediatric practice for four years in a medically underserved area of Washington D.C. prior to joining Virginia Pediatric group in 2004. She enjoys all ages in Pediatrics as each group has its unique set of rewards and challenges, but she particularly enjoys the adolescent years. She feels it is a pleasure to watch the children to which she has tended blossom into young adults. When she is not hauling her little ones around to their activities, she enjoys music, traveling, and visiting the local Virginia wine country. Her favorite job is being a mother to two wonderful children and wife to a loving husband.
