Shannon is a lifelong resident and grew up on South Bend’s west side. She has 3 children and is known
as Grammy to her 2 grandkids. She spent many years as a “Soccer Mom” and wouldn’t trade a single
minute! Some of her interests include: Traveling (Fort Myers Beach is a favorite), baking, fitness, she
enjoys reading biographies, mysteries, and books with storylines in the late 1800s – early 1900s.
Shannon likes spending time outdoors, you can often find her walking campus while her son rides along
on his bike. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, trying new restaurants, and listening to
live music.


Shannon is an eternal student and wishes there was more time to learn about all of the things that
interest her. Working in Higher Ed is a natural fit and being on campus makes her heart smile. Before
coming to Notre Dame Shannon spent some time as a Financial Aid Counselor at Saint Mary’s College.
Even though her role is within the OIT, her education has centered on Business Administration. She
enjoys working with numbers and digging into the details.
