After 2 years at BDC, she became the Director of the government funded Self Employment Program, where she worked for 13 years. During that time she assisted in launching over 1000 new businesses in Winnipeg.
In February 2009, Shannon was appointed to CEO of the Manitoba Tourism Education Council, which is an organization that provides Human Resource training to the tourism, hospitality and retail industries in Manitoba.
