Shannon is originally from the Reservoir area where she currently resides today. The idea of holding a job within the legal field was originally a backup plan for Shannon during her college years. It was not until Shannon began working as a paralegal that she recognized both her interest and talent in the legal field. Shannon says that she enjoys nothing more than finding the one specific document, like a needle in a haystack, and therefore turning the case into the clients favor. To Shannon, small first service large firm experience simply means receiving the best of both worlds.
