Shannon Burlingame

Shannon grew up in Sumner, Washington but after living in Oaxaca, Mexico for four years she now calls Tacoma, WA home. Shannon loves living in Tacoma because there is always something exciting happening in the city, whether it’s an art show supporting local artists, a trendy new restaurant opening or a seasonal festival. You’ll often catch her hiking in the PNW with her schnauzer Lucy, attending a play at a local theater or searching for the best tacos in town.
