Shannan has global financial sector experience, having worked for major organisations in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres.
Originally from the Darling Range, overlooking Perth in Western Australia, Shannan travelled to Europe in 2005. After settling in Chesterfield, with a dashing Derbyshire man, she spent the next 6 years working in insurance and then as an auditor. During this period Shannan qualified with level 4 Diploma Financial Qualifications.
In 2013, Shannan returned to Australia and continued her career in banking. Firstly, as a Branch Manager and subsequently as an Area Manager, overseeing 14 branches before moving into a Product Management role. Shannan returned to the UK to reacquaint herself with the stunning UK countryside and not so stunning climate in August 2017.
For relaxation, Shannan is a steady runner and enjoys exploring the White and Dark Peaks of Derbyshire with her husband and their two Airedales. Shannan also has a keen appreciation of live music, theatre and dance.
