Shannon graduated with an HND in Acting & Performance from City of Glasgow College and continued her training as a Drama Facilitator at the Citizens Theatre before joining In Cahootz in 2019.

She is also the main contact for participants attending various artform workshops in the Creative Programme and with Annmarie, Shannon co-delivers the Personal Development Award accredited by Fife College of Education.

Shannon has acted in the main productions Oor Carol & The Seagulls, Wid Ye Credit It, Sheriff Dick’s Swan Song and The Heckelburnie Hecklers. With the Citizens Theatre Care Experience Ensemble, she has played P.K Kelly in Martin Travers’ award-winning play Whatever Happened to the Jaggy Nettles; Layla Arnoult in The Dodo Experiment and the Young Mother in WAC’s award-winning debut short film Found.

She has developed her skills in script-writing for film and has co-written and assisted in directing Creative Citizens short films: A View Fae the Windae, She is… and Sparra.

Shannon is a designated Mental Health First Aider and has training in First Aid, Child Protection, Motivational Interviewing, Drug Awareness, Delivering to Groups and Conduct the Assessment Process.

Shannon believes that it’s important to use our voices to help empower others and is passionate about creating work that embodies this.
