Shannon McIntire, Director of Operations

I have been happily immersed in all facets of hospitality management for over 17 years. After returning home from Evergreen State College, I began building my restaurant repertoire with casual fine dining service, kitchen operations and front-of-house management. These experiences evolved into operations and general management positions for several years until I decided to pivot away from restaurants and began operations management for Honest to Goodness in 2019!  Facilitating the culinary and hospitality experience is a natural joy for me!  I love working in the FOODIE club. I firmly believe folks who work with and seek out good food are some of the best people!!

My appreciation for great food started early. I grew up in a food-centric environment with strong cooks all throughout the family tree! I fondly remember: learning about herbs and crop planting from my Dad on spring and summer weekends and how to make the perfect tacos from my mom!. My Grandma taught me how to bake her AMAZING chocolate spice cake for birthday parties and I loved to tag along with my Aunt CeCe to her test kitchen to whip up some seasonal delights. (She was the home economist for The Seattle Times for 23 years!)   

When I’m not talking shop, I am spending quality time with my feisty daughter who keeps me moving! I have a part time portrait photography business and am active in community camaraderie. I also deeply enjoy music, travel and time with friends!
