Shannon Cahoon

Shannon is the Community Development Manager at Fibre Federal Credit Union in Longview, WA. Often referring to herself as the “Head Circus Clown” at FFCU, her position oversees the financial education, political advocacy, and community engagement and development efforts of the credit union.

Shannon is a passionate advocate for the movement, and is involved at many levels outside of her own shop- including having been a past Crasher, an NTCUE winner, a long time Regional Coordinator for the National Youth Involvement Board, a member of the SW WA Chapter of Credit Unions, a member of the NWCUA Grassroots Advocacy Committee, and a member of this very YCUP committee.

When she’s not “credit unioning” she fosters kittens through her local humane society and serves as Board President for Lower Columbia School Gardens.

"Cooperation is the best educator known." - Alphonse Dejardins
