Hello from Carrie & Shannon! Thanks for visiting and spending a little time with us! Our hope is you’ll get to know us through our posts but here’s a little something to get you started.


I’m a journalist-turned-comms professional and recent DC transplant. After years of day dreaming about moving back to the city where Shannon and I first met during a summer internship program, I decided to make it a reality. I left New York to be closer to friends and family in DC and haven’t looked back since.

Adventurous eater, enthusiastic procrastinator and lover of bagels.

After years of different blogs, both personal and private, successful and not, I’m so glad to be here on You, Me & DC with Carrie. I’m your typical 25 year old graduate student, pretending like I know what’s going on and drinking entirely too many Starbucks Refreshers (seriously I have a problem).

Avid traveler, voracious reader and professional puppy-video watcher.

If you find yourself with questions or comments about anything and want to reach me, shoot me an email at shannon@youmedc.com!
