Brittany comes to AI with a wide range of experience in team leadership, from restaurant management to delegating tasks within a corporate quality-assurance department. She studied Chemical Engineering at The Ohio State University, where she was a member of the Cultural Diversity Committee. Brittany feels that her experience there was invaluable, since the lessons she learned translate well to managing a diverse, multi-generational staff like AI’s. Brittany is enjoying conquering the challenges of keeping everyone on task in a fast-paced, constantly growing company like AI. She loves seeing results, and she uses her skills from her competitive cheerleading days to “cheer on” her team. Off duty, Brittany likes camping, fishing, refurbishing old furniture, and hanging with her Yorkie, Hagen. Brittany is an avid artist, specializing in framed velvet paintings of celebrities from the 1960’s. You might recognize her work in your grandmother’s finished-basement. If you need to draw her attention, flash some bling at her (it’s her weakness).
Shannon comes to Actionable Insights with a degree in English from The Ohio State University. She brings her skills in writing and research to our Digital Strategy team, where she writes copy for our marketing campaigns, sets them up, and runs them.

She enjoys the challenges of working in a fast-paced company that is continually showing growth. Away from her desk, Shannon can usually be found reading, picking up a new language, catching the latest superhero flick, or bemoaning the fact that the English language makes no sense (even though she loves it). She is an unapologetic dog stalker who has spent years trying and failing to keep her two standard poodles from taking over her bed. Shannon is also a two-time Race Walking Olympic medalist. In her spare time, she operates a full-service cat walking business, Pawesome.
