Co-Director of Adult Programs & Himalaya Program Director

B.A. Environmental Science and Biology; Middlebury College

Shannon was first drawn to Nepal as a college student.  Her deep connection with the people, spiritual traditions and landscape drew her back and had her settled in the Kathmandu Valley for fourteen years.  In that time, she worked as an instructor and Program Director with Dragons in Nepal, Tibet and India, developing systems and curriculum to teach to Dragons learning outcomes to maximize student engagement, and to consistently produce profound and safe experiences. Following her time in the field, Shannon helped steward our programs for college credit on three continents. She is also a lead facilitator, designing professional trainings for organizations and schools around the country to train, assess and mentor staff.  Currently she is working to spearhead our Adult Programming.  Her roots with Dragons run 15 years deep.

Shannon lives in Boulder, Colorado with her partner, Tim, and their children Celia and Mason. In her free time, you can find her exploring the folds of the front range, finding places to dance, and creatively designing clothes and spaces for her family. She is a certified yoga instructor, a scholar of eastern philosophy, and a lover of all things wild.
