Shannon and her husband Ryan

Shannon Carmody is a passionate, realistic and friendly Nutritionist who has worked in the Health and Wellness field for 11 years. She earned her B.S. from Central Washington University and M.S. from Washington State University in Human Nutrition. Over the last five years Shannon’s career has focused exclusively on employee wellness because she believes that such programs can help working adults to improve their overall health and well-being both inside and outside of work.

Shannon joined the City of Tacoma in September of 2014 to assist with the design and rollout of the Tacoma Employee Wellness Program, which launched January 1, 2015. She is thankful to be part of the new program and is excited for the possibilities and innovative directions that can assist employees in living longer, healthier and happier lives.

“An employee wellness program is something that should be fun, rewarding and inspiring for employees and should meet each individual where they are currently at on the road to good health. My goal is that employee wellness will become an important part of the City of Tacoma culture”.

Shannon is originally from Yakima, WA and she is an avid soccer fan and dog lover. She can be contacted at scarmody@cityoftacoma.org
