Shannon found her way to her muse through the exploration of passions and dedication to personal development. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin with a BA in Communication Science & Rhetorical Studies, she began her career in Fitness Instruction and Studio Management at Pure Barre in Madison, Wisconsin. This experience fostered her deep appreciation for the connection of physical health and overall happiness, which guides her life and decision-making to this day. Seeking to further her career with more tactical experience in digital media and marketing, she went on to work in Demand Generation at a software company in Austin, Texas. Through her time in tech marketing, Shannon gained invaluable knowledge that gave her the skills and confidence to fuse her work and the vision for her life’s design, through Moderna Muse. She is a firm believer that every experience - even one that seems void of passion or purpose in the moment - has the ability to transform you and lead you to your higher calling. As COO & Executive Brand Curator at Moderna Muse, Shannon combines her tenacious belief in wellness, personal development, and creativity to bring the voice of the Muse to life, while discovering new ways to connect to and inspire the growing Moderna Muse community.
