Shannon oversees all event logistics and operations related to the annual Next Gen and Global Summits. One of her favorite aspects about her job is being able to work and collaborate with such a strong, independent and extremely intelligent group of women who are all striving to make positive change. Shannon is from the San Francisco Bay Area but currently resides in Austin, Texas with Bam Bam, a small but mighty chihuahua. Shannon‘s passion outside of work is riding horses. She has been on the back of a horse since she was 3 years old and has competed all over the country in show jumping competitions. She now enjoys relaxed, evening gallops with her horse, Donny Darco, who she has had since she was 17 years old.
