Director of Community Abundance | firstname.lastname@example.org
Shannon Stott is inspired by the magic of communication and community. For over 20 years, as an educator, facilitator and improviser, she has responded to subtle clues that her partners give to communicate in these mediums. She used these unique listening and responding skills to foster relationships between the CDC and local University Educators in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania as well as create educational programming on HIV and AIDS for the Tanzanian and American public. Her communication skills have been the foundation of her success in working for the U.S. Department of State, within the creative community of Texas and now as the Director of Community Abundance at the MoHA. Shannon considers effective communication a practice and is motivated to continue this practice to help strengthen the artist community that she is working for and is a part of.
