Shannon Plunkett, Project Assistant
Shannon grew up in Austin, Texas in a family where critical thought was fostered and commitment to both integrity and equality were highly valued. She first became motivated to address issues of equality in high school, when she observed the vast differences in the structures and treatment of students for two local high schools that shared the same building.
Prior to joining Ellwanger Law, Shannon worked for Dr. Sarah Weddington, best known as the lawyer who successfully argued Roe v. Wade. During her time there she was inspired by the tireless efforts of Dr. Weddington and many others to ensure the rights of women are clearly stated and supported in this country’s laws.
Shannon is completing an undergraduate degree in Psychology at Texas State University and hopes to attend law school in the near future, with a goal of being able to use that degree to help people.
