Brittany Shannon

Program Coordinator

Brittany Shannon, M.A.

My educational journey began at my local community college. With the help of my instructors and staff, I went on to transfer to a four-year university and became the first female in my family to earn a bachelor’s degree, as well as a master’s degree. At Evergreen Valley College I worked for seven years in various programs, supporting ESL, first-generation, and nursing students. I am excited to be working for the SJECCD district again at Milpitas Extension.
