Shannon spent 15 years driving internal innovation and seeding and developing external collaborations for major global companies including Wells Fargo, Intuit and Odesk. Shannon returned to Future State—one of the first places she’d worked after college—because it was where she felt most able to contribute her full self—something that became a top priority after she became a mom.
