Shearwater welcomes new community ambassador


Shearwater, the new master-planned residential community on County Road 210, has hired Julia Shannon as community ambassador to serve as liaison between the community and the residents, realtors and prospective residents.

“We are thrilled to welcome Julia to Shearwater to help build connections between our residents and their community, as well as inform prospective residents about all the exciting things happening at Shearwater,” said Jill Flores, Shearwater’s community director. “Julia’s 25 years of experience in the customer service and sales industries, as well as her friendly personality and positive energy, make her a perfect fit for this role.”

Since beginning her new career as a community ambassador, Shannon has had the opportunity to meet many of Shearwater’s diverse residents. As the first point-of-contact at the Kayak Club amenity center, Shannon ensures residents’ needs are met and they have a positive experience. In addition, Shannon also provides tours of the community to prospective residents and explains Shearwater’s unique approach to lifestyle programming and activities.

“Shearwater is truly a spectacular community with all of the amenities, events and healthy living opportunities that make it such a great place to live,” Shannon said. “I am so proud to represent this community and look forward to continuing to develop relationships with residents and realtors, as well as share my excitement for Shearwater with prospective residents.”

Originally from upstate New York, Shannon moved to St. Augustine three years ago to be closer to family. Outside of work, she enjoys being active in her community by volunteering with the Humane Society and assisting with ongoing hurricane recovery efforts. She also loves spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

The Shearwater Kayak Club is located at 100 Kayak Way in St. Augustine. The amenities information center is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Shearwater offers home designs from D.S. Ware Homes, Drees Homes, David Weekley Homes, Lennar, Richmond American Homes and MasterCraft Builder Group.
