Meet Ana:

Shannon Carr - Director, Operations

Meet Shannon:

  • She has over 20 years of project management experience. Direct, transparent, and thoughtful—sometimes referred to as a “respected force”—she seeks first to understand our client companies. What are their goals? Their needs? What’s important to them and to their success? Then she focuses on ensuring that all operations run smoothly and efficiently.

  • Shannon’s calculated yet visionary approach to process, data collection and representation is never cookie-cutter. She’s always alert to better ways of presenting data and managing efficient processes, always flexing when needed to ensure a positive experience. She takes nothing for granted, sifting through viewpoints, opinions, and perspective to produce an objective, big-picture view of organizational readiness.

  • When Shannon isn’t swimming in processes and data, she heads to the beach; water and sand are good therapy for the process and data-driven soul.
