Shannon enjoys hiking, reading, and volunteering with her church. Her greatest passion is her family. She is married to an amazing man and has four incredible children, one daughter and three sons (one who is technically a son-in-law). While all of her children are now grown and have either left or are in the process of leaving, she still has two dogs and one cat to keep her company during the dreary Pacific Northwest evenings.
