When Shannon began considering university degrees, she was interested in studying something somewhere between science and fine art. She ended up attending a tiny school that taught interactive arts and technologies, and she knew instantly that she found her passion. After graduation, Shannon gained experience from a number of start-ups—before being invited to Slack by a long-time friend.
Shannon enjoys riding her motorcycle to the office each morning—usually arriving at Slack around 9:00 AM. Shannon eases into the day with a cup of coffee and some cereal from the company kitchen while she casually catches up with co-workers, and the remainder of her day is spent refining current projects and working with the different feature teams to design out the mobile equivalent experience.
