Shannon is the Area Representative and serves on the National Board of governors for the Human Rights Campaign serving Oregon and S.W. Washington.
This will be Shannon's third year as SheBrew Festival Coordinator alongside Jenn. After Shannon has enjoyed some amazing craft beer she likes to describe herself as follows:
Chief Change Creator
Human Rights Heroine
Primary Pilsner Popper
Master Micro Manager
Jenn's main role is finding all of the badass womxn brewers and cider makers and running the sister event, the largest female homebrew competition in the nation. An award winning homebrewer, cat herder (volunteer coordinator) for many beer events, she is also half of the McPolanders, a homebrewing wife/husband team that has brewed at a dozen local breweries around town and can be found at countless beer events and festivals making sure the beer is flowing and the people are happy. In her "spare" time she loves to travel the globe and spoil her two lovely cats, Namaste & Olive.
Chief Creative Agent
Christine attended the first SheBrew in 2013 and wanted to help the movement grow by adding services of anything design and marketing. She re-branded SHEBREW with logo and website and handled anything that can be printed for fundraising. By spreading awareness of what SHEBREW means through visual communication she believes community can come together more inclusively. Christine loves dress up bike rides, climbing mountains and teaching her 9 year old how to brew (homebrew sodas).
