Shannon graduated magna cum laude from William Paterson University with a bachelor degree in Biology and magna cum laude from Rutgers University with a doctoral degree in Physical Therapy. While in college and graduate school, Shannon worked very closely with physical therapists in an outpatient sports clinic and completed clinical work in outpatient orthopedics, acute care physical therapy, and school-based pediatrics.
Shannon played multiple varsity sports in high school, including soccer, track, and softball. Her involvement in sports, combined with a love of anatomy and physiology, lead her to the field of physical therapy. While in high school, Shannon was part of a medical science program that allowed her to volunteer her time in a local hospital where she shadowed doctors, nurses, and even physical therapists, which only solidified her passion for physical rehabilitation sciences.
Shannon enjoys treating a variety of injuries/conditions but has a passion for treating young athletes. She knows firsthand how important it is for athletes to get back to playing without pain or limitations; therefore, she takes particular care in integrating, not only physical rehab but also an understanding of emotional recovery following an injury.
While not at work, Shannon enjoys taking Pilates and yoga classes, kickboxing, high-intensity interval training, and various boot camp style classes at her fitness club. She also enjoys taking time out of her schedule to travel with her husband and has been to 23 of the 50 states in the USA. In her downtime, she loves to snuggle with her beagle mix rescue dog, Rylee, and take her for hikes, runs, and outdoor activities. Shannon also has a passion for shopping and is always looking for the best bargain there is!
