Shannon studied at The CUNY School of Law and worked in their nationally-recognized public interest law clinic on behalf of battered immigrant woman.

She was awarded a Revson Fellowship to work with a farm worker's project in New Mexico and transferred into the University of New Mexico's dual degree program, earning her Juris Doctor and Master's in Latin American studies.
Shannon experienced a pivotal moment in her career as a criminal defense attorney when she asked herself, "Who do I want to represent? People who can afford the best attorney, or vulnerable populations whose story too often goes unheard?" Shannon made her decision.
