Shannon is a recent college grad from UMass Amherst with a Bachelors degree in Marketing and Communications. Shannon works not only in her field as an assistant planner and buyer at Havas Media, but also as a coach at Wicked on the weekend. With a history of 12 years as a competitive gymnast as well as being a former coach of the sport, two year team captain, two year league MVP, and four year all scholastic, it was no surprise Shannon instantly fell in love with the challenging sport of CrossFit. Shannon was first introduced to CrossFit back in high school by former gymnastics coach and now fellow CrossFit Wicked coach, Alicia Gomes. Shannon first joined Wicked in 2012 during summers while still in college. Coaching the sport became of interest about a year ago, prompting Shannon to become a Level One certified trainer to help fellow members achieve their goals.
