Q&A with Shannon
Q: Who are the women that have inspired you?
A: My mother inspired my work ethic. As a single mom, she worked three jobs to support our family. I also had a female RVP at Enterprise Holdings that I hold in high regard. She had a lot of influence on my success at Enterprise.
Q: What is your walk up song?
A: Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” – they are my favorite band, hands down!
Q: What are three things you look forward to on your drive to work each day?
A: Working with all the folks here at the Association Office, getting my daily “Good Morning” from my floor, and feeling blessed I work for an organization that values community.
