Shannan and her husband, Russell, along with their 2 sons, Caleb and Ethan, moved to Montgomery in 2007. She holds an Associate’s Degree in Fine Arts/Dance, a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Communications and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership with a Principalship Certification. Shannan began her work part-time with HMBA in January of 2012 as an event coordinator for the organization. In the course of that first year, HMBA made pivotal changes in their scope and reach of the organization to provide better benefits for its membership. In this process, the City of Montgomery took notice of the improvements and invited Shannan to partner with the city part-time as the Director of Economic Development. Selling Montgomery, TX to the rest of the world is the way she best sums up the position that she holds for both MACC and the City of Montgomery. Shannan is looking forward to all the future holds for this wonderful historic town.
