Shannon hails from the Jersey Shore, and after graduating from Harvard she returned to work as an engineer for an environmental consulting firm. A true career switcher, Shannon had no idea exactly what she wanted to do (Shhh! Don’t tell admissions!). However, Michigan had a good football team, and that was enough for this former NCAA athlete. Turned out to be the best decision she ever made! She is having the time of her life throwing tailgate parties, cooking for Section 2 potlucks, and exploring Ann Arbor with her adorable dog (Don’t worry, she can’t help but show everyone pictures). This foodie has been preparing for this trip for a long time, making homemade pasta, meatballs, and pizza with her dad from a young age. She cannot wait to spend 9 days eating pasta, pasta, and more pasta. Her childhood nickname, “Noodlehead” might come back at some point during the trip. A veteran of Mystery 4.0, she survived the trip to the No-No-Zone and back. She can’t quite let go of the mystery spirit, so don’t be shocked if there are a few surprises along the way!
