Shannon Fair

Program Development Specialist
Shannon works with the National Resource Center for Youth Services (NRCYS) as a Program Development Specialist for OKSA. She coordinates the collection of National Youth in Transition Database (NYTD) information from nineteen and twenty-one-year-old foster care alumni, and also serves as a resource for child welfare workers, tribes, care providers, community collaborators, and young adults. Shannon has worked with DHS as an Independent Living Coordinator, Family Team Meeting Facilitator, and a Permanency Planning Worker. Shannon earned her bachelor’s in psychology from Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and continues to work with their Department of Psychology coordinating their practicum program, managing community outreach and mentoring students. Shannon’s passion is working alongside young adults as they learn to navigate the transition to adulthood. She is the athletic trainer for the Tulsa Threat, Tulsa’s very own women’s tackle football team. She loves rock music (the louder the better), reading, spending time with her family, and volunteering in her community. She also has a possibly unhealthy obsession with all things Wonder Woman.
