A Native Californian, Shannon was involved in a start-up Wheelchair Manufacturer and the disabled Sports World at the age of 24. Inspired by her late husband, a World renowned disabled Table Tennis player and entrepreneur, Shannon developed a passion for charitable work and giving.

She enjoys the Florida lifestyle, calls Florida home and started her own Property Management company first in California and now Florida. She has a successful property management team and more recently home development branch, but throughout her business endeavors her philanthropic resolve has stuck with her and created a deeper appreciation for helping animals and people, one program at a time.
