At SPG she was responsible for the negotiations of their six Atlanta centers as well as properties in Florida, South Carolina and North Carolina. She managed the specialty leasing program at the ground-up development of Mall of Georgia, and was also part of the transitions and acquisitions teams where she onboarded newly acquired properties. She also negotiated local and regional deals including incubating new concepts with Aya Skincare and Teavana.

She then moved into a regional role with JLL as a Regional Specialty Leasing Manager, overseeing efforts in several states. She was part of the ground-up development and implemented the specialty leasing program at Ka Makana Ali’i on Oahu, Hawaii. Shannon also worked with national tenants to do deals at numerous JLL centers across the country.

Having moved to Atlanta when she was four, she considers herself a native and has raised her own family here. She enjoys the outdoors, and paddleboarding has become a recent passion in addition to biking, camping and HIIT workouts at the park.
