Before joining Visante, Shannon was Administrative Assistant to Kristin Fox-Smith supporting her work at IU Health.  In this capacity she coordinated various computer applications including the creation of spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations.  She assisted with the Inmar Accounts Receivable management program which included reporting for claims write-offs and unapplied cash review.

Previously, Shannon was a Staff Accountant at Diebold Information & Security Systems in Salt Lake City, UT.  At Diebold, she managed and reconciled over $20 million of the company’s assets in the general ledger, assuring accuracy of the ledger’s coding and depreciation values assigned.  She was credited with reconciling Diebold’s Information & Security Systems fixed asset and intangible asset accounts which had gotten badly out of balance through multiple previous data entry errors.   In addition to this, she was responsible for the monthly filing of sales tax, business licenses and personal property taxes for the company’s various locations across the country.  She was responsible for managing several state tax audits.

For several years before joining Diebold, Shannon was Accounts Payable Clerk/Payroll Clerk and Assistant Property Manager for Property Management Systems.  In this position she supported the company’s various condominium associations and managed a number of residential properties. She was instrumental in the implementation of the Yardi Voyager software that provides specialized support for property management companies.

Following graduation from the University of Utah with a B.S. in Behavioral Science and Health, Shannon was hired by her alma mater as an Administrative Assistant supporting the Risk Management Department of the Office of Budget & Analysis as well as doing special projects for the Vice President for Administrative Services. While still a student, she served as Accounting and Payroll clerk at Mountain States Bindery.
