Hi, I'm Shannon.

I'm originally from the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, and made the move to Brisbane City straight after finishing high school. This marked the beginning of what has turned into a diverse and vibrant career path, spanning from retailing video games, to floristry, working with not-for-profits, and most recently, the Defence sector.

At my core, I'm a massive nerd, and I love bringing this aspect of my personality into my professional life. I spend a lot of my time at home with my cat, which is truly my happy place, delving deep into all things related to qualitative data.

These days, I'm rocking pastel blue hair and, as a fun fact, I have almost three-quarters of my body adorned with tattoos. Each piece of ink reflects my passions and values, encapsulating my fascination with ancient history, my love for Pixar films, and my connection to country.

In 2015, I made the move to Perth and completely fell in love with the city. I've been fortunate enough to build an amazing community here and am incredibly excited to support small businesses and organisations that make a difference.

I have a deep-seated passion for championing social causes, especially those supporting women, veterans, and mental health. This enthusiasm is a driving force in everything I undertake.

Above all, I'm eager to collaborate with you!

Where to start in recommending Shannon as a Communications Specialist. Shannon was contracted to our company to provide a Marketing Strategy and to grow our business exposure on Social Media. Shannon provided us with a clear and concise strategy as well as numerous lines of effort to grow our presence across Social media, local business, conventions and expos and with key stakeholders.

Not only did Shannon do an amazing job in writing the strategy, she joined us at a Conference helping us engage with politicians, large companies and new customers. During a busy show she collected and posted an enormous amount of content, posting daily, allowing me more time to network and engage with others.

Shannon is an expert in Communications, is committed to supporting the Industry and is a pleasure to work with every day.

I highly recommend her for any Communications work and would encourage anyone needing to grow their profile to reach out to her immediately.



Working with Shannon was a dream!

Shannon came to me with a relatively large project and a very quick turnaround but her ability to navigate the process with ease and clarity made my job so much easier.

Shannon had a clear vision for what she wanted to achieve for her client and communicated it in a way that made the urgency of the project seem irrelevant.

Her wealth of knowledge and expertise is second to none. And I cannot wait to work with her again on future projects!



Shannon has been a pleasure to work with. She comes with an array of skills and experience that make her ideal for developing innovative and workable solutions. Her zest for the creative is inspiring and her ability to deliver on plans is commendable, despite having limited resources.

Shannon has a fantastic network of people who she draws from and shares knowledge with, demonstrating her ability to build relationships. Shannon would be an asset to any team looking for an edge or point of difference from the rest.
