Shannon Quadres

Hi! I'm Shannon! I'm a 35 year old former teacher from the lone star state, wife and most importantly, a mother to three dragon girls. I'm a plus-size, novice hiker attempting a NOBO thru-hike on the PCT 2020! When I'm not obsessing over this exciting opportunity, I can be located anywhere pizza can be found. Other facts: I have a white lab named Zeus, and I am addicted to office supplies. IG: @fireroamingwild
