She took four years of ASL classes at the University of Minnesota but has gained most of her signing knowledge from working in the office. Shannon has one dog, an Australian cattle dog mix named Ripley, that likes to make sure she stays active when she is not working. Every year she does a variety of 5k’s including The Color Run, Dirty Girl 5k, and Wipe Out Run. When it is nice out Shannon is likely to be outside hiking and searching for new vineyards around Minnesota.
