Shannon Watt

Shannon is a mother of 3 teens, who hit 40 and decided that instead of a "mid-life crisis", she wanted an adventure of a lifetime. She convinced her wonderfully open-minded husband to pack up their house, sell most of their possessions, and travel the USA in an RV for a year or two. Besides homeschooling her kids, running their online program, Watts in the World, Shannon loves to explore new places. Nothing is more exciting than waking up in a new city everyday, and discovering what's great about the people, the food & culture. In her downtime, Shannon enjoys taking photos on a camera way more sophisticated than her, and hanging out in nature. Unless there's lots of bugs or mud, then she'd rather snuggle up with a good book in the RV!
