While earning a bachelor’s degree in marketing and a public relations certificate from Boise State University, Shannon worked with nonprofits to improve their marketing/PR efforts and realized she loved working in the public sector. Shannon then completed a master’s degree in public administration from NC State University with a nonprofit emphasis.

Shannon has worked on development/communications teams at a youth organization for girls, an autism organization, a rural economic development center, and a food bank. She specialized in grant writing, grants management, donor databases and analysis, and fundraising campaigns.
