Hailing from Augusta, Georgia, Shannon Croom moved to Florida in 1998 to enjoy the sunshine, theme parks, and a distinct lack of snow. After spending time working in the entertainment department for Universal Studios Florida, she found her way even further south to Vero Beach and began working for Autobahn Communications in 2001. Shortly after, she and her (then) boyfriend adopted a rambunctious Schnauzer/Yorkshire Terrier mix named Karma. In 2007, Shannon married the aforementioned boyfriend at Disney’s Vero Beach Resort in a ceremony overlooking the ocean. The family are happy to call Vero Beach, Florida their home for over fifteen years where they enjoy the beach, pop culture, traveling, and the occasional half-marathon.
