Shannon’s journey toward animal liberation really got going Thanksgiving Day, 1996, when she was just 9 years old. After she saw footage showing what happens to animals in order for them to end up on our plates, she never ate another animal again and immediately became an activist, stickering packages and holding demos outside of supermarkets.After about 2 decades of eating a vegetarian  diet, Shannon was made aware of the atrocities occurring in the dairy industry — she had never heard this information before.  She also watched Cowspiracy on Netflix and then made the decision to transition to a Vegan Lifestyle overnight.  Shortly after, she found out how horrendous the egg industry is, another one she had been supporting during all that time as a vegetarian.Shannon now understood why those “crazy vegans” weren’t eating cheese or eggs — they weren’t so crazy after all.  She got right back into activism — this time with more knowledge, more reasons, and an incredible amount of inspiration from her son, VeganEvan (who decided to go vegan the same day, even though she tried talking him out of it)!  Shannon is fighting for the animals and for Evan’s future.  She quit her job in 2017 to advocate, educate, and activate full-time.  Shannon and Evan travel all over doing outreach & actions for the animals.  They are in the process of starting up a new non-profit organization, the Animal Liberation Action Squad. Shannon is a Certified Vegan Lifestyle Coach & Educator.
