Staff Spotlight: Shannon Daugherty

Title: Regional Events Manager

Pronouns: she/her/hers

Hometown: Titusville, PA

About me:  I joined USA Fencing in May of 2023 as the Regional Events Manager. In this role, I oversee the Regional Events for USA Fencing, which provide opportunities to qualify for the National Events and serve as a way to develop the sport as a whole in the United States. 

I bring a bit of NGB experience with me, having worked for USA Wrestling before accepting the position with USA Fencing. Having been involved, at some level, in the sport of wrestling for over 17 years, I decided it was time to branch out, knowing I wanted to continue working within the Olympic Movement. I am excited to see where USA Fencing takes me!

In my free time, I love to travel. I'm always planning my next adventure. I try to stay active and love spending time outside. Hiking, paddleboarding, and pickleball are some of my favorites. I'm also a bit of a bookworm, preferring to start and end my day with my nose in a book.
