About Shannon Dunn Downing:Olympian, Snowboarder, Mother & Author


With a fourteen year professional career from 1990-2004, I broke through barriers and won titles, but my greatest achievement is being able to spend time living a snowboarding, surfing and outdoor lifestyle with my teenage boys and husband.

I continue to enjoy my passion in snowboarding by riding often with friends, attending events, and sharing stories about the sport’s history.

My involvement in my North County, San Diego community has given me experiential knowledge of the challenges and desires that families face. I have a passion to serve others and have been a part of leadership roles with women’s bible studies, kid’s youth leadership, missional volunteer work internationally and locally, and volunteering as hospitality chair at my kids’ public high school. My desire is to constantly use my talents and gifts to encourage others in their life journeys.

My faith in Jesus Christ has given me joy that goes beyond understanding.
