Shannon fell in love with horses in third grade when she read The Black Stallion. After her first riding lesson, she never looked back. Shannon was fortunate enough to ride on the West Linn High School Equestrian Team and compete in 4H for two years. Having obtained her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from George Fox University and PATH certifications, Shannon loves being able to combine her love of horse and human psychology. As a traumatic brain injury survivor, Shannon is especially passionate about helping individuals also recovering from TBI. She is very thankful she gets to do what she loves every day!

Shannon’s favorite things include horseback riding, her dog “Bear” and playing trumpet.
