Women Who Rule Chairperson
Shannon was born and raised in Long Beach, CA and currently lives in the desert with her husband, Kilian and her family. She is the Owner/Senior Project Manager of SLawrence Consulting and a highly-motivated, personable business professional with an entrepreneurial spirit and more than 15 years' experience as a project management consultant, event manager, business owner, and creative writer. As a certified Project Management (PMP), she is active in a number of online Marketing and Project Management forums and is always on the lookout for new opportunities to improve upon her knowledge and expertise so she can pass it on to her clients.
Shannon's love of project management stems from her obsession with puzzles and her motto, "A place for everything and everything in its place." A self-proclaimed organizational guru, she enjoys systems and processes but also likes to live life with spontaneity, creativity and fun and gets most of her belly laughs and inspiration from her two Frenchie Pugs, Gizmo and Shrimps.
An animal lover and perpetual student, Shannon is an accomplished horseback rider, a champion of fur babies and holds several degrees and certifications. She is committed to the Women Leaders Forum, to being a mentor and leader and to choosing roles and opportunities to make the world a better place to live now and in the future.
