Favorite Baked Goods


Shannon Brady was born in North Dakota, but raised in South Dakota and Northern California.  She received her undergraduate degree in Health Education from Ellis College and her Masters of Science in Emergency and Disaster Management from Trident University.

Shannon served twenty-two years in the Army. The first thirteen were in the Signal Corps, where she held positions ranging from Team Leader to Technical Control Noncommissioned Officer. The next nine years were with the Military Corp as an Operations Coordinator to Defense Attaché Offices in U.S. Embassies.  

At the young age of three, Shannon’s love of baking started while assisting her grandmother. She continued baking throughout her military service wherever she served––South Korea, the Netherlands, Jordan, Chad, Ukraine or the United States.

After a traumatic brain injury in Ukraine, Shannon was sent to the Warrior Transition Unit at Walter Reed Medical Center. There she learned of Dog Tag Inc., and immediately knew she had to be involved. She is most excited about learning the various tools and fundamentals needed to become a successful business owner, in order to start and operate her own prosperous bakery. Shannon’s favorite baked good is a great Kouign-amann.
