Every month on the 18th, I celebrate the strong, intelligent and kind women in my life.
This month, meet my friend Shannon Taylor Pappas.
Shannon and I met over 10 years ago. Her husband is a dear friend of mine from college. She is a badass, hardworking, compassionate amazing woman. Her titles include mom of four, wife and #CEO!
18th Style: Where are you from?
18th Style: What’s your day job?
Shannon: I am CEO of Intelligent Quisine
18th Style: What does style mean to you?
Shannon: Style to me is a way to express yourself without saying a word. My outfit today is a pair of rag & bone jeans, a Banana Republic blazer with some fun heels. When I head to the office I like to be focused, serious and productive but also have a casual and fun side so the ideas and energy can flow!
As a mother of four young kids, my work style is inspired by all the working moms out there. It’s a bit of skill mixed with pure luck to get out of the house with the outfit you intended to wear. But it’s also a way to transform into a new head space and get my working day started on a good foot!
18th Style: What’s your favorite store or brand?
Shannon: It depends but I love to workout so outside of the office I’d have to say that lately I really love Spiritual Gangster
18th Style: Lastly, is there anything you want to say to other women?
Shannon: “My wish for all women is that we find a way to lift each other up and not step on each other to get what we want. And that we teach our daughters (and sons) to do the same. Perform a kind deed for another woman and help lift her up! “
