For over 20 years, Shannon White has worked in the healthcare field sharing knowledge of life-changing products and services, assisting many patients with their quality of life. Through her participation in mission work involving home visits to chronically ill patients, her understanding of the importance in providing specialized, compassionate care to those in need has been enhanced, which led her to join the Axiva team.
A native of Kansas City, Shannon completed her undergraduate studies at the University of Missouri-Kansas City as well as her graduate work at West Texas A&M University. In her spare time, she, and her pet Chihuahua, Paris (who is a beast!), enjoy morning jogs. Along with playing (a mean) piano, she likes to travel and experience various cultures. Every few years she will join a group mission trip to a developing nation where she enjoys helping build a home or providing comfort to a family or community in need. Building on her educational background, you may also find her providing free math and science tutoring at the public library on weekends.
Shannon believes that continual learning will enhance the quality of service she provides to the offices she works with and will pursue her doctorate degree in the coming years. Shannon looks forward to meeting each of you and learning how she might partner with your office as an extension of your team.

Specialty Infusion Care, When and Where You Need it.
At Axiva, we have intake specialists, registered pharmacists and nurses who specialize in providing world-class care to our patients. We have administered hundreds of Ig treatments to patients in the comfort and convenience of their own homes. All patients are carefully screened to determine if home administration is safe and appropriate for their individual needs. A nurse monitors all home treatments continuously.
Specialty Physicians Who Use Ig
Ig is necessary in aiding the treatment of these illnesses. Antibodies help fight off infection for those whose immune systems are really low due to other treatments or due to the illness itself. These types of specialty physicians use Ig therapy for the following common patient diagnoses:
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Myasthenia Gravis
- Peripheral neuropathy
- Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP)
- Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN)
HEMATOLOGY AND ONCOLOGY
- Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP)
- Post-bone marrow transplants
- Immune neutropenia
- Myeloma and chronic lymphocytic leukemia
- Pemphigus Vulgaris
- Psoriatic Arthropathy
- Kawasaki Syndrome
ALLERGY AND IMMUNOLOGY
- Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID)
- Immunodeficiency with increased IgM
- Primary immunodeficiency (PID)
- Congenital hypogammaglobulinemia
- Autoimmune uveitis
Some diagnoses are off-label for Ig and may require additional insurance approval.
