She earned her Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Marketing and has spent 10 years climbing the corporate ladder before she realized she was not following her true passion, which is to connect with others in her community through health and wellness. Shannon believes any training program should include a holistic approach to wellness and incorporate elements of cardio, strength building, flexibility, proper nutrition and a strong mind-body connection.
