Fitness has always been an important aspect of Shannon’s life. Shannon played just about every sport growing up, but really focused on softball. The highlight of her career was winning the 18u AFA National Championship and representing the United States for a season in Europe. After softball ended, Shannon became passionate about running. She has completed 9 full marathons and one ultra marathon.
Shannon earned her personal training certification in 2007. Soon after, she decided to move to Los Angeles where she could further her training and career.
