Shanon Bonds

Background, Career Summary and Experience

Shanon Bonds joined the team in 2010 and has an extensive background in marketing. Over the years she has worked with a number of firms in this capacity, including a Big 4 accounting practice.  One of her many roles involved developing proposals and value propositions which allowed her to communicate with firm partners located across the country. Her most recent achievement was collaborating virtually with a science professor located at a North Carolina university. This professor had received a grant from the National Science Foundation to develop science lessons primarily for community college students. Shanon developed attractive packaging for the product, designed and wrote information for the project website, conducted extensive research, and kept the scientist on track for reaching the project goals.

Shanon spends much of her spare time chasing after her two children and chauffeuring them between dance lessons and soccer practices.  She also enjoys reading an occasional book.
