Shannon Campbell

Enumclaw is the only place Shannon has ever considered home. After pastry school she realized this small town was the only place to raise a family with husband Matt. She is well grounded having been raised in a home that taught her the importance of hard work and a strong sense of self. It wasn’t until Kendrick and Julia, ages 13 and 10, came into her life that she realized a bigger picture, one of community. Shannon donates her time and energy to local non-profits. She keeps her inner peace through baking, camping, crafting and spending time at the beach.
