Treasurer and Event Coordinator

Shannon is a former band nerd and holds degrees in American Sign Language and accounting. She loves her role as a wife and homeschooling mother. Pen and paper are her tools. She and her family live only a few miles from where she grew up in Oklahoma. She’s attended the same church since in her mother’s womb, a legacy her children are continuing. Her alter ego, “paperclip girl,” fights chaos with organization, and you shouldn’t be surprised to see Shannon wearing paperclips. Shannon can be found on Facebook.
