Shannon Claflin

Born and raised in Florida, the Gulf Coast to be specific, Shannon Claflin is all too familiar with the Sunshine State's balmy weather, famous sugar white sands, and beautiful, emerald green waters. She never could have imagined living far from the water, that is until she got accepted to the University of Florida in 2015. From being a member of the Dazzler dance team to volunteering around the community, this public relations and business administration graduate wouldn't trade her college experience for the world.

With four years of Gainesville college life under her belt, Shannon has experienced it all! Exploring all different types of living situations, Shannon has lived in an all-girl dorm, a chic apartment, and for her senior year, she even downsized to living in a sorority house with 39 of her closest friends. While sleeping 8 feet away from her roommate was always fun, her favorite place to call home was her apartment. 

Having recently graduated, Shannon is now embarking upon her next journey – a professional career in beautiful Tampa. She's excited to find the perfect apartment to settle into – maybe even one that's on the water!

When Shannon isn't at the beach, she's either traveling, spending time with her brother's golden retriever, Brodie, or cooking a healthy recipe she discovered on Pinterest.
