Say hello to Shannon!

Shannon has been employed with ALKU for over a year as an Electrical Engineer working on power systems. Her favorite part of the job is the opportunity to learn something new every day and being able to work with her colleagues in group settings or 1 on 1.

When she is not working, Shannon keeps busy! She loves to hike, kayak, run, and volunteer with her church. Recently, they partnered with a communal garden that donates their produce to under privileged in the community.  Shannon also dabbles in music— She has played piano since she was little, and she recently picked up guitar. Shannon loves sports too. She supports all the local Virginia teams… That is unless they are playing the Jets, Rangers, or Yankees!

Another fun fact about Shannon is that of anyone alive or dead (or fictional) she would be Lucy Ricardo from I Love Lucy because of all the fun and wacky adventures she had. An adventure Shannon is planning for herself is a trip to Northern Ireland. She has already visited the south, but her family has roots in the north and she would love to discover more about her heritage.

If you’ve attended an ALKU event or Happy Hour in the past year, you’ve probably met Shannon as she tries not to miss any of the ALKU gatherings. You just might catch her at the next event on August 8th!
