Chief Operating Officer
Prior to joining VoteRiders, Shannon Anderson spent the better part of the decade working for President Obama in numerous capacities, most recently as California State Field Director at Organizing for Action. Before taking what was originally envisioned as a “hiatus" from her career as an entertainment lawyer to devote 2012 to President Obama's reelection campaign in North Carolina, Shannon gained extensive experience in the entertainment industry, serving as VP Business & Legal Affairs at production company BermanBraun and film distributor First Look Studios, and subsequently representing indie films and talent on the international film festival circuit. Shannon began her legal career as an entertainment and business litigator at premier law firms, and held positions at top talent agencies and studios prior to practicing law. Shannon received her J.D. from UCLA, graduated Phi Beta Kappa with high honors from UCSB, and has served on numerous nonprofit boards the entirety of her career.
