Shannon is a recent graduate of Western University’s faculty of law. She also holds a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) from Queen’s University.

At Western Law, Shannon was the proud recipient of the W.R. Poole Award and a Dean’s List student. As an oralist in the 2021 Gale Cup, Shannon was named a Dickson Medalist and was granted the Beverly McLachlin Prize. This passion for advocacy and personal excellence extended to her role as Co-Chair of the Advocacy Committee, organizing Western Law’s most prestigious internal moots. 

Shannon values community service. While living in London, she volunteered with Pro Bono Students of Canada, the Elgin Oxford Legal Clinic, the London Tenant’s Association, and the London Poverty Research Centre.

Outside of school and work, you can find Shannon taking solace and inspiration in the arts. She is a want-to-be theatre snob and loves to attend the ballet. On the weekends, you can find her tending to her small army of houseplants, hiking, biking, or training for the marathon she accidentally signed up for.
