Her mother was very young when having Shannon’s brother, and Shannon and consequently had to drop out of high school. Shannon will be a first generation college graduate. She is eager to make her family proud. Shannon started dating the love of her life in 2013 and married her in 2018. They live happily in their small town and love exploring the mountains and river every weekend. Shannon and her partner are both really passionate about hiking and their dogs seem to love it, too. They have been trying to start a family for approximately two years, and they are confident 2022 is the year they get their positive result! Shannon wants to better herself for her future child(ren) and show them that anything is possible if you work hard and never give up.
