Shannon Thomas, Program Manager, comes from a data management background. She worked as a technician for Emory’s Office of Housing where she analyzed program needs and implemented a system that integrates daily staff habits into long-term operability. Her ability to shift from a technical, logistics-heavy perspective to a creative and audience-centric one makes her a wonderful asset to the Urban Recipe family. When she is not scrutinizing spreadsheets or trying to walk her cat, she likes to run, bake, and read. She holds a degree in Chemistry and English from Emory University.
