Meet Our Volunteer, Ebby Shanks

Meet Ebby Shanks, RN

What is your volunteer position and how long you have been here?  Client Advocate and Registered Nurse at Portico for almost a year

What exactly do you do at Portico?  I work as a Client Advocate doing pregnancy tests, talking with clients as well as nursing responsibilities, teaching, giving prenatal vitamins and soon ultrasounds!!

What is the most rewarding part of volunteering at Portico?  Getting to sit with and talk with clients, hear their stories, encourage them and love on them.  I also get to work with some incredible women who love Jesus and have a heart for the brokenhearted.

What are your hobbies?  I love reading, baking/cake decorating, working out and spending time with the people I love.  Oh and hiking Radnor Lake.

What does your day look like when you’re not at Portico?  Hiking, cleaning, decorating my home, spending time with friends and lots and lots of cake decorating.

Do you have a favorite quote or life verse to share?  I love prayer so 2 Corinthians 7:14 “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from Heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.”

If you could eat or drink just one thing for the rest of your life and never get tired of it, what would it be?  Cake! I love love cake!  Or anything Mexican.

What is something that you just can’t do no matter how hard to try?  I can’t bend my pinkie finger without bending my ring finger as well…it’s very frustrating.  I also cannot get my family to tell my twin sister and me apart…we are now 30 years old and they STILL haven’t gotten it right.

What do you love most about living in your community?  I live in Nashville and love the community I live in. Everyone is friendly and active.  People are always walking, running, hiking at Radnor Lake.
