President & CEO
Shannon is the original Go Girl. Under the ownership of Nor Cal Beverage, Shannon launched Go Girl in 2005 and made her mark on the beverage industry, donating a significant portion of the proceeds to breast cancer research. She is dynamic, driven and always a true leader. In addition to her duties at Nor-Cal Beverage, Shannon has found the time to be chairperson of the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk, setting new fundraising records. She also participated in the Capital Cup, an annual golf tournament where she has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Jenna and Patrick Foundation of Hope, which funds research to find a cure for cystinosis.
No surprise, in 2013, Shannon was named one of the “Women Who Mean Business” by the Sacramento Business Journal, and it’s her leadership, vision and vibrant personality that have given Go Girl the role of hometown favorite across Northern California.
After teaching yoga in Los Angeles for many years, Emily followed her heart and relocated to Northern California-eventually marrying Sean Manchester and having two precious little boys; Alden and Lake ( 2 and 6 years old). Her yoga dreams came true when she opened The Yoga Dive, with best friend Laura in 2016. Three years later, her husband Sean was killed in a kayaking accident on The South Yuba River- changing her and the trajectory of her life irrevocably.
After this loss, Emily says, “I turned to my community at The Yoga Dive, my female friendships, and the practices of yoga. They have held me together through my grief and through my darkness. My intention now is to serve others by sharing the gifts of yoga and the truth of my life- (we need each other- especially women!) The knowing that we are all connected and interdependent inspires me and gives me hope that no matter how alone we may feel- we are always an integral part of the tapestry of this universe.”
Emily strength, perspective and spirit are celebrated by Go Girl!
