5 things you always wanted to know about Shannon:

When I head out on the highway, I’m usually looking for…
the nearest coffee shop.

If I didn’t have to work on Tuesday I would…
spend the day cooking. When I was growing up, my dream was to be a chef, so I try to make my younger self proud by cooking as much as I can.

If I get stuck on an island, it better be…
Rhode Island. My family and I spend much of our summers at our house in Portsmouth, RI. It was built in the 1890’s and has been in my family for over 80 years!

Super powers are cliché, I just wish I could…
grow a green thumb and stop killing my plants.

My last meal…
would be Swedish meatballs (and I don’t mean the ones from Ikea). When I studied abroad in Stockholm, I couldn’t get enough. If I had stayed any longer than four months, Sweden would have been scrambling to prevent a meatball shortage.
