Shannon has been a John Ball Zookeeper for four years, but she was taking care of the stingrays and sharks for a few years before. Back then the stingrays was a traveling exhibit owned by Living Exhibits. She received her Bachelor in Animal Biology from GVSU!
Shannon hails from Marine City but currently lives in Grand Haven with her husband Tim and her two cats! She is an avid crafter who quilts and sews!
Her surprising ‘fun fact’? She was a pre-school teacher before she became an animal care specialist.
