Teammates at Brown & Brown Northwest Insurance are committed to influencing positive outcomes for our clients and the community. Shannon Morrison exemplifies this commitment, and we marvel at her ability to seamlessly juggle the many responsibilities of being an Employee Benefits Consultant and the responsibilities of her outside-the-office jobs as the coach of each of her two middle-school aged girls’ softball and basketball teams. Shannon is passionate about providing solutions to our clients, and she is passionate about giving the next generation the athletic opportunities she enjoyed so much growing up. “I started playing softball when I was six, and I continued until my husband and I started our family. Being part of a team taught me the importance of teamwork, commitment, and perseverance. These lessons have helped me work through some very challenging times, but they also taught me how to handle success with humility and grace. As a coach, my goal is to teach my team these points while having fun and growing our physical skills,” Shannon tells us. When asked how she manages to do it all, Shannon shares, “During softball and basketball seasons, I find I actually manage my time better. Having that commitment to be there for the girls really motivates me. I’ve known a lot of these kids for most of their lives, and there’s nothing like watching them work hard to improve and then accomplish a goal. The smile of pride on their face is my reward at the end of the day.”
There’s a fine line between being secure and being breached. In business everyone is online, and everyone’s vulnerable to increasingly sophisticated cyber-criminals. Attacks such as data breaches and hacks increase each year. So it really isn’t a case of if your business will be hit, but when.
