Shannon grew up in San Antonio, Texas, where she was raised to be a proud Dallas Cowboys fan. She moved to Houston in 2001, and graduated from Rice University with a B.A. in Economics in 2005. Shannon served for six years as a forensic accountant at the firm of Arnie and Company, working on a multitude of the most complex commercial damage analyses and investigations.

In 2011, Shannon moved to California to attend Santa Clara University School of Law. After graduating in 2014, she returned to Houston and – after admittance to the Texas State Bar in April of 2015 – started practicing law at Feldman & Feldman PC. She received her second board certification for the state of California later that year.

When not practicing law, Shannon enjoys cooking, playing volleyball and competing in, or cheering on, almost any other sport.
