SHANNON THOMAS / development director

A co-founder, Shannon has never met a stranger.  She is passionate about people, décor, and creating space for genuine conversations.  Also a native Texan, Shannon studied Education at Texas A&M University (whoop!) and then worked for a non-profit ministry to college students called Breakaway.  After a summer full of backpacking in Yosemite and sea kayaking in the San Juans, Shannon moved to Denver to begin her masters studies in clinical counseling. 

Before the privilege of full time mommy-hood arose, Shannon was an adept rock climber and solid on a snowboard.  She still loves to backpack, hike, and ride her mountain bike.  A perfect day for Shannon will always include coffee and good conversation.  She is a lifelong learner and dreamer, and Shannon is an entrepreneur at heart.   

Shannon is the resident voice of wisdom at Expedition and holds final say on the hiring process.  She is compassionate to the core and one of the best listeners you will ever meet.  She is an aspiring foodie and is in love with the city of Denver.  If it were up to her, though, the Thomas kids would be raised in the mountains!
