SD Asst.Coach, Fleet Manager, TMP
Shannon has been a volunteer with Marine Parents since September of 2015, initially serving as a Platoon Parent in Lima Company, a Group Guide in Fox Company, and Group Leader in Kilo Company, before assuming her current role as Assistant Coach for San Diego Recruit Battalions. As an assistant coach, Shannon provides support, training and guidance to all volunteers in San Diego.
Shannon joined Marine Parents when her son was in boot camp with 3rd Battalion, Lima Company. Shannon was inspired by Lisa G. and wanted to repay all of the support Lisa provided for her.
In addition to having a Marine son, Shannon is also married to a Marine, which helped prepare Shannon for her son's journey. Shannon is "so proud" of her son for following his dream of become a United States Marine. Most recently, Shannon's brother-in-law, graduated from MCRD San Diego in July 2017. Both her son and her brother are enjoying their permanent duty stations not far from each other. In support of the Marine Parents mission, Shannon joined Team Marine Parents in 2017, and completed her first Marine Corps marathon. She plans to return in 2018 to grab another medal from the Marine Corps Marathon while supporting Marine Parents. Shannon has enjoyed being a part of the Marine Parents family, making lifelong friendships and connections along the way.
