Senior Editor, BizBash

Shannon has an extensive performing arts background, graduating from a fine and performing arts magnet program in high school, dancing professionally with the New Jersey Tap Ensemble, and attending the Radio City Rockettes Conservatory program. At 15, Shannon signed with a top modeling agency in NYC and traveled extensively away from her hometown of Marlboro, NJ—including living in Tokyo, Japan for three months—while earning her degree in Digital Journalism and Media from Penn State University. Upon graduation, she worked as a reporter for The Daily Mail after training in its London offices, but found herself back at BizBash, where she interned in college. Now, Shannon works as BizBash's senior editor where she creates digital and print content for event professionals around the world.
