Shannon is a world traveller. Her favourite places to visit are Italy and the U.K. She grew up in Vancouver and moved to Calgary in 1998. She has a passion for pet health and owns a chihuahua named Benjamin Button, whom she adopted from Pawsitive Match. They enjoy long walks in the park, visiting with fur friends, and trips to HomeSense to pick out new toys.

In her time off, Shannon is usually on a plane to visit family and friends or baking treats for the rest of the McKnight staff.
