Biography
Shannon is an innovative and established leader in the field of personal genomics with expertise in oncology and precision medicine. As a trained board-certified genetic counselor whose career has spanned both clinical and business roles, her work has leveraged both the public’s interest in discovering the “quantified self” and the rapidly evolving companion diagnostics market. Shannon’s research and career focus has been devoted to connecting people with their DNA, and connecting genomic service providers with their end-users. At GenomeSmart, her vision is to make the process of genetic evaluation simple, accessible, and affordable by leveraging on AI-powered technologies to make it easier to get the right tests to the right person at the right time- before a cancer diagnosis. She received her MBA from the Eller College of Management, has served as a consulting founding team member to many startups including Color Genomics and Genome Medical, and has co-founded two companies of her own. She also served as Program Director at Thermo Fisher Scientific and as a principal at Intelligent Consulting. She is a wife, mother of two, a night owl, dog person, and prefers whiskey over beer.
