Hi, I'm Shannon. I’m an award-winning writer with more than two decades of experience in the communications industry, working for 10 years as a sports writer at the Orlando Sentinel and Detroit Free Press before moving to higher education communications and freelance writing in Dayton, Ohio. From live event coverage to features, I can deliver a well-reported story, whether it’s a profile of a new coach or a multi-sourced health article with a human-interest element. My portfolio also includes personal essays and articles with nuanced takes on culture, history, education, politics, travel, parenting, health, beauty and fashion.
