Shannon Dowlearn is in her first year on staff at the Denver Support Center. She is originally from Texas and attended the University of Arkansas, where she studied International Economics and also ran for the Razorback Cross Country and Track & Field Team. Competing as a D1 athlete taught her a lot about community, faith, and humility. She also learned how no accomplishment compares to the Love of the Lord. After university, she taught Economics at an inner-city Catholic High School in Houston and then married her high-school sweetheart, Grayson. They now seek the adventure of courageously following God’s Will--and they try to enjoy as many hikes as possible along the way.
