After graduating high school in 2011, Shannon was accepted into The Young Americans College of Performing Arts based in Southern California. It lead her to tour for nine months throughout Europe and Japan to perform as well as teach music outreach workshops. She spent a season working for The Young American's dinner theater at Boyne Highlands Ski Resort in Michigan and earned both an Associate's Degree and Performance Certificate.
Wanting to further her training, she moved to Chicago to take part in the Lou Conte Dance Studio Scholarship Program. She then was hired and sailed with Princess Cruises for one year and then Crystal Cruises, a six-star luxury cruise line. Through it all, she has performed for audiences in over 20 countries, on many seas!
Shannon has most recently relocated to NYC to take part in Broadway Dance Center's Professional Semester in hopes to sign with an agent for future auditions in the city!
