I am excited to share my passion, commitment and experience in supporting the work we do for children and young people in our community.   As a leader and team member of this great organization,


I cannot wait to see what the future holds. We are embarking on new and exciting initiatives in support of our “Bigs” and “Littles” and in setting a course to advance our mission, vision and values; making our community a better place to live, work, and thrive in.

My favorites:

  • Spending time with family and friends

  • Playing with my grandson, Jackson


  •  Reading, gardening, and relaxing

  • Working out

Shannon Leary

Program Specialist


I recently graduated from UW-La Crosse with a Public Health and Community Health Education major.   


As a program specialist I will be conducting the interviews for the Bigs and Littles, finding the perfect match for the Bigs and Littles, and checking in to make sure the matches are going well.

I look forward to working with you and you becoming a part of this program!

I've recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse with a major in Psychology. I'm really excited to be starting with Big Brothers Big Sisters as one of their Program Specialists! 


As a Program Specialist, I'll be meeting with the volunteers, guardians, and kids in the community in order to make the best matches and then I'll stay with those matches throughout the relationship.  I'm looking forward to meeting with you all!
