    President Elect

    Director of Marketing

    Shannon has worked in the A/E/C industry since 2004, but transitioned to the Marketing/BD role in 2016 after earning a Bachelor of Science in Marketing from California Baptist University. She is now the Director of Marketing at Southstar Engineering & Consulting, which specializes in CM/PM for transportation projects. Shannon was instrumental in starting the SMPS Inland Empire Chapter after realizing the need for this organization in the region and helped assemble the team to make it come to life. Shannon is Chief Chaos Coordinator of her two boys, ages 7 and 3, although she is generally overruled by the “threenager” of the house. This specialized training in crisis negotiation serves her well while completing proposals.
