She graduated Cum Laude from The University of Arizona with a degree in Broadcast Journalism in May of that year.
Shannon's previous experience at local news stations and national television networks have provided her with skills in reporting on both hard news and entertainment stories, as well as local and national news.
While working on the Hot 20 News team in the fall of 2015, she was not only given the opportunity to interview country music stars on multiple red carpets, but also asked to fill in as Executive Assistant for the president of CMT.
When she's not bringing you the latest local news, Shannon enjoys performing. She's a singer/songwriter and plays the acoustic guitar. She also enjoys running and taking her huge Great Pyrenees puppy on walks. Reality TV shows like Keeping up with the Kardashians and The Bachelor are her guilty pleasure. Shannon comes from a military family and grew up moving across the country. She enjoys skiing the Rockies while visiting her family in Colorado.
Shannon is extremely excited to get to know the community of Middle Georgia, and to be a part of the WGXA News family.
