Catch Up with the Team: Shannon Ranes

Possessing degrees in both business and music—not to mention a love of travel—Shannon Ranes easily found her place at ETI. Beginning as an ETI Trip Coordinator over 20 years ago, Shannon enjoys working with group leaders on the financial side of trips in her current position as a Trip Accountant.

After already getting to know Shannon a bit in the past, we caught up with her to see what she’s been up to lately!

Where's the last place you traveled to and what was your favorite thing you did while there?

New York state, this past July. Three family reunions with extended family in upstate New York, hiked the gorge at Watkins Glen State Park and viewed about 18 waterfalls, stopped at the Thousand Islands/St. Lawrence Seaway, and two Great Lakes (Lake Ontario and Lake Erie).

To keep hotel window curtains closed, use the clips on a hanger from the closet, to clip the two sections of curtain together.
