Shannon may have had it in her genes to work in real estate - she credits her mom who worked as a real estate agent for igniting her desire. After earning her law degree, she took her natural leadership ability and joined a title company.

"My career in title has allowed me to develop a wide variety of skills and talents from legal knowledge, management skills, sales and professional development," Shannon shared with VLTA's Workforce Development Taskforce.

Not only does she enjoy the constant ability to grown within the title industry, but also working alongside a great staff and within her community! If you have an interest in real estate and are passionate about great customer service, Shannon believes you could find the title industry a great fit for you, too!
