Goalkeeper Shannon was born in Canada to Scottish parents. In 2009, in a bid to catch the eye of Scotland national coach Anna Signeul, she signed for Hibernian from semi-professional side FC Indiana, after a season where she conceded just two goals in the regular North American W-League. She quickly earned a reputation as one of the best shot-stoppers in the Scottish Women's Premier League, and was voted Hibernian's Players Player of the Year for 2010. She was named Players Player of the Year at the 2011 Scottish Women’s Football Awards.

Shannon now plays for Swedish side Vittsjo GIK.
