Shannon grew up canoeing on the lakes of Southern Ontario, where she nurtured a passion for aquatic insects and terrestrial plants. She moved to Prince George in 2010 to pursue a Bachelors of Science, and continued to grow her connections to natural spaces. She has worked and volunteered with several non-profits, most recently finding her spot as Water Coordinator at MakeWay. Shannon began volunteering with Wildsight Invermere in 2018 and now serves as a technical advisor to the board; she sees incredible value in getting involved with local non-profits as a way to connect with the community. You will find her skiing, biking, or knitting in her spare time.
