Shanniese lives in Avon, Indiana with her husband of 8 years, Greg, and their 6-year-old son Mason. Since 2014, she has owned her makeup artistry business, Beats by Shanniese. Most of her weekends are spent doing makeup for weddings, birthdays, proms, and any special event you can think of. She enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends in her free time.
Upon going to her first W&HT event, Shanniese immediately knew she needed this organization. Navigating this career field as a woman can be difficult, but when you surround yourself with other women who genuinely want you to succeed, it makes it all worth it. This made her want to have a more significant role in the organization and have this impact on others.
During her time on the board, she hopes to increase the number of male allies in W&HT. She understands that there are men who understand the disparities in tech and can impact the work we do.
