Ep86 Shannon Kendall – From Actresses to Application Developer

Shannon Kendall


Shannon spent 7 years as an actor in New York City before waking up one morning in April 2017 and deciding to do something completely different with her life. In less than a year, she taught herself to write code, attended a top dev Bootcamp in NYC, and started working as an Application Developer at Lifion by ADP. She also just recently finished reading the Harry Potter series for the first time in her life and has aspirations to one day own a soda stream. You can follow her musings about tech, reposts of memes, and pictures of her two rescue cats on Twitter and Instagram.
