Shannon received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Agriculture Economics from Kansas State University in 1993. She attended Creighton University School of Law in Omaha, Nebraska and received her law degree (J.D.) from Creighton in 2000. While in law school, she clerked for Nebraska Legal Services for approximately two years where she gained extensive and valuable legal experience working with families while working toward her law degree.
Shortly after graduation, relocated to Columbia, Missouri. In Columbia, she took a position with Mid-Missouri Legal Services that services clients in Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Chariton, Cole, Cooper, Howard, Miller, Moniteau, and Osage Counties. As a staff attorney she continued to work with families and represent clients in adoptions, child custody, paternity, dissolution of marriage, domestic violence cases and modifications.
Since August 2009, Shannon has practiced in the Kansas City Metropolitan area exclusive in the family law area. Shannon’s experience, mediation and guardian ad litem training, as well as her membership in AFCC have provided her with the tools and resources to help the cases she is involved proceed more quickly and amicably. Which is ultimately in the entire family’s best interests.
