My name is Shannon Donovan and I am a senior captain at NYIT. I am originally from Kings Park NY. I have been playing lacrosse since kindergarten and have always loved it. I am studying psychology and am going to be pursuing my masters in education. I played on the Yellow Jackets for two years and played for All Stars for 3 years. I currently work at a daycare called Kiddie Care and am a nanny for a family that has a 3 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. Every summer I work a lacrosse camp teaching children from first grade all the way to ninth grade on how to play lacrosse and teaching them special tactics so they can be the best! I love working with kids and was an assistant coach for a third grade team and fifth grade team from Kings Park.

I attended Bellport high school where I played varsity lacrosse for 4 years, was captain for my junior and senior year, and received the all league honors. From 7th-12th grade I played travel ball with Beach Bums for 4 years and Title Nine for 1 year. I have coached and volunteered at countless clinics in the past and love working with youth girls lacrosse.

I played lacrosse at Northwestern University for four years where I played straight midfield. The team made it to the Final Four my freshman year. I was named to the all big ten team my senior year and was ranked third for free position goals in a single season at Northwestern.
