Director of Communications

There isn’t time – so brief is life – for bickerings, apologies, heartburnings, callings to account. There is only time for loving – and but an instant, so to speak, for that.” – Mark Twain

Shannon has the most fun job (in her opinion). The best part is collaborating with CLIA youth to creatively tell their stories and project their voices. Shannon is responsible for developing, designing and maintaining CLIA’s outreach materials and communications channels.

Shannon has a background in graphic design and a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from Drew University. Before coming to Baltimore, she worked on community-based art and research projects with youth in New York City and in Quito, Ecuador.

Outside of CLIA, Shannon enjoys taking photos, riding bikes and doing karaoke.

Shannon is an expert in humming, using autocorrect, and killing low maintenance houseplants.
