Shannon Swindle is the Director of Operations for Utter Nonsense, overseeing marketing and strategic partnerships for the organization. As a result of her self-taught PR efforts, Utter Nonsense caught the attention of a buyer at Target, leading to its distribution in all 1,800 stores nationwide. Leveraging her background as a mom and former teacher, she managed the development of the newest version, Utter Nonsense: Family Edition, with her brother Tim. She previously worked in higher education for Valparaiso University, has a background in international studies and has lived in several different countries. Shannon is passionate about play-based learning and would like to develop new games for children based on this concept.
