|Shannon Waters is
proud to be the first female Marine Sergeant to play
the game of SURVIVOR. Although she has completed her
military service and is now in the world of sales,
Shannon will always remain true to her roots as a
second generation Marine.
After serving her country for five
years, Shannon went onto become a chef before
changing gears to be a sales representative for a
food service company. She credits her success to her
industry knowledge and people skills. In her sales
role, she feels connected to people soon after
meeting them and is able to understand how to
deliver what they genuinely need. This ability
helped her achieve “Salesman of the Year” in
2008, along with the support of a great sales team.
On the weekends, Shannon splits her time between
riding her Harley, which she’s affectionately
named “Chunky”, enjoying the companionship of
her dogs and hanging out with family. As number 8
out of 9 kids, she has plenty of family in close
proximity to keep her busy.
Shannon is committed to preparing for the game. She
has lost 4 pant sizes and 70 pounds but admits that
she may have trouble staying under the radar.
“I’m like this ball of energy just ready to
explode, because I’m putting it out there and I
think that rocks.”
Shannon is a native of Renton, Wash., where she
currently resides with her canine kids Bruce and
