Shannon Bonilla, Account Coordinator

Shannon started with the Heron Team as a public relations intern in the spring of 2018. Her experience made her fall in love with the world of PR, and the value there is in the industry. She credits her internship at Heron for her decision to pursue a career in public relations. During her time as a college student, Shannon worked in fundraising in her university’s Office of Alumni Relations, which helped her gain experience as a communications professional.

Originally from Nicaragua, Shannon speaks English and Spanish, and hopes to someday be fluent in Portuguese. She moved to Chicago in the fall of 2014 to earn her college degree. Shannon graduated from North Park University with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies and a minor in business.

In her free time, Shannon enjoys exploring different parts of the city, spending as much time in the sun during the warmer months, and catching up on her favorite TV shows.
