Seeing the World as a Network – Shannon Alderman

by on April 20, 2016

SAldermanNext in our series on MEASURE Evaluation financial staff is Shannon Alderman. First some background: at UNC, all of our funds pass through the university’s Office of Sponsored Research (OSR). We came to know Shannon because she was the one at OSR who managed the MEASURE funds. OSR financial managers can have good or bad views of the projects they oversee, depending on the integrity and responsiveness of the project. Evidently she came to respect us so much that she came to work for us in 2013.

Shannon manages the finances of our associate awards in Kenya, Tanzania, and South Africa. She enjoys contributing to something that is bigger than she is and building relationships with the people she is doing that with – that is, with the others on the MEASURE Evaluation team.

Shannon was born and raised in Creedmoor, North Carolina, about a 30 minute drive from the MEASURE Evaluation offices. She must’ve had a happy upbringing because she speaks with her family nearly every day. And she and her husband, Daniel, have dinner with his family every week.

She and Daniel met about 10 years ago, and were married in 2012. Their son, Nolan, was born in August last year. She recently returned from maternity leave, and we are glad to have her back – not just for accounting acumen, but for her friendship.
