Shannon joined the Ontario Shores team as its leader in 2019 following 18 years at The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation where she worked in direct mail, midrange giving, and, for 16 of those 18 years, major gifts.
During her more than twenty years in health care fundraising, she’s raised over $202 million for cancer and mental health programs and research. Passionate about building authentic relationships with both donors and her team, Shannon is a dynamic leader and presenter, dedicated to telling compelling stories (with an appropriate dash of humour thrown in for good measure) in the pursuit of raising funds for the greater social good.
Shannon holds a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Political Science from Laurentian University, a Master of Public Administration from Queen’s University, and has been a Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) since 2003. She is an avid runner, dedicated Toronto Blue Jays fan, reader, and podcaster who lives in Whitby with her husband and very spoiled dog.
