SEATTLE TEAM BIOGRAPHIES //
Shannon Fisher, Seattle Director || Seattle, WA
Shannon joined SWB's Seattle program as director in February 2020. Her goal in life is to continue to do the next right thing. After playing soccer for Ottawa University in Kansas, she moved to London and lived in community with asylum seekers. From there, Shannon attended law school at the University of Kansas. After completion, she held leadership positions at Family Promise affiliates, an organization that used a community building model as a response to family homelessness, with a brief intermission piloting a program as a financial coach for low and moderate income households. Shannon will say yes to any invitation to an adult sports league and loves to watch her kittens dig in the house plants from her Wyze camera.
Stephanie is a newcomer to SWB and just began her position as head coach with the high school female team and co-ed middle school team at Seattle World School. She graduated from WWU with a degree in Kinesiology (specialization in health and fitness) and minors in sport psychology and Spanish. Her attention while at school was focused on women of color’s health and how various barriers impact not only newly arrived immigrants but also the generations that follow. A fitness fanatic at heart, Stephanie loves using sport and physical fitness to help build a lasting relationship with wellness and is thrilled to work with a program that includes everyone on that passage of finding what health, confidence and success means for them.
Robby first started at SWB as a volunteer assistant coach in 2018 and when a full time coaching position opened for the fall of 2019, he jumped at the opportunity to join the SWB Seattle team. Robby coaches the High School Boy's team and Middle School Co-Ed team at the Seattle World School. Prior to this he worked as an Ecologist restoring rivers in the Pacific Northwest and as a Teacher in Chiapas, Mexico where he also coached Middle School Soccer. Robby is inspired by the way that Soccer can bring people together and create community and is excited about the opportunity to make the world a more just and equitable place through the mission of SWB. When he is not coaching, Robby can be found playing futsal, biking around town, or exploring the rivers and mountains of the Pacific Northwest.
