Coach. Athlete. Photographer. Writer. Mom.

Shannon Mahre is a 4 season coach + athlete and owner of Girls with Grit, a women's adventure company that offers ski, mountain bike, stand up paddle board, fly fishing and trail running/endurance clinics, lessons & retreats for women all over the PNW. She also has a women’s clothing line that she had designed to give women the courage, the strength and the spirit to pursue their passions + dreams… and to realize that true grit is within every single one of us. 

Shannon is also a professional photographer, adventure writer , marketing specialist and web designer through her other company, Shannon Mahre Media. Locally, she has a monthly outdoor column in the Yakima Herald and in Yakima Magazine, but she also writes, designs and shoots photos for companies all over the nation. 

As a mother of two young boys that are her constant companions, family always comes first, but as a woman, she is determined to not lose sight of her goals and passions — which is why she has created businesses that evolve around what she loves, and that also allow her to be mom first, business woman second. 

Shoot Shannon an email if you'd like to work with her, partner with her or have her as a speaker at one of your events.
