Shannon is a former Bond Trader and Global Project Manager. She worked on the 91st floor of the WTC North Tower in NYC when it was bombed on February 26th 1993. They were trapped in the stairwell for over 4 1/2 hours, in the dark, not knowing if the building would fall down with them inside. As debris was falling and fires were burning all around them, the amazing firefighters and police led them safely out of the building. She did not realize it at the time, but this tragedy was the catalyst that changed the trajectory of her life forever. It sparked Shannon’s true admiration, love and support for these heroes that while others run away as fast as they can; they run into the chaos with the only concern of helping others.

On January 5, 2019, Shannon and her husband Mitch lost their Sr Airman son by suicide. These two life altering events changed Shannon’s passion in life to become one of service. She sits on the boards of several non-profits in assisting veterans, first responders, honoring Gold Star Families, as well as working to remove the stigmatism of depression and suicide awareness.
