I’m Shannon. During my time in college, I realized my ultimate passion was inspiring others through visual and digital art. I earned a B.A. in Communication Arts & Humanities with a minor in Digital Media from Keystone College. Shortly after graduating, I landed a dream job here at Marywood as Web Development’s Web Design Specialist & Graphic Designer in 2016... and it’s awesome! I help guide web content editors in the visual direction they wish to go with their sites, shoot video and photos, and make the website and the contents within exhibit a pleasing and modern aesthetic.
Altogether, Marywood is such a welcoming and warm environment. I’m always looking for new challenges to grow myself professionally and personally and working at Marywood has given me just that. I enjoy collaborating and working with constructive, positive, and energetic people. So if you have an idea, project, or just want to take a moment to shoot the breeze, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My experience in media/web/digital design dates back early on in my life. I have always been fascinated by digital art and how it can be utilized to effectively communicate messages. My favorite type of medium to express myself through is film. I have produced several short films during my time in college and never plan on stopping. I really love writing and producing instructional video tutorials as well. View them on my Youtube channel. I am a freelance Media Producer, so If you have a project, let me know! Previously, I worked for Keystone College as a Media Services Student Assistant which prepared me incredibly well to step into the tech and media industries. I plan on earning my MBA from Marywood to solidify my skills, take on more leadership roles, and teach college courses.
