Shannon Nivens

Events Coordinator

Mrs. Nivens doesn't teach in a classroom, but she works with students in Student Voice, Grad Committee and other extracurricular initiatives. She has been a fundraiser and event planner for 30 years. She's worked and volunteered at national historical sites, health care settings, and education.

Her happy place is outside; she loves the mountains, forests, oceans, and travel. Family is super important to her. She is married with two kids - aged 19 and 16. Nothing is better than adventuring with her crew.

Mrs Nivens thinks it's incredibly important to get involved - get involved with your school and your community. She believes that every single person can contribute something - take pride in what you help create while you are here at Dame and throughout your adventures in life.
