Welcome, Shannon Anderson!

by: John Coleman

The Neighborhood Health Clinic recently announced that Shannon Anderson has joined the non-medical staff. Shannon will play a significant role in the Clinic’s marketing efforts, strategic planning, real estate expansion and other developmental activities. Shannon’s background is exceptionally well-suited for providing a leadership role in the present and future community contributions by the Neighborhood Health Clinic.

Shannon was born in Alabama, moved to Naples thirty years ago and remains a fan of the “Roll Tide”. Shannon met her husband, Bruce, while attending Stetson University College of Law. Prior to law school, she was a cum laude graduate of Morningside College.

Her legal career in Collier County is most impressive. In addition to being a partner of Woodward, Pires, Anderson & Lombardo, where she specialized in litigation and family law, she held various positions with the Collier County Bar Association. These included the presidency of the Association. Shannon was Collier County’s sixth woman attorney, taught at Edison State College as an adjunct professor and was a member of the Florida Bar Grievance Committee.

Shannon’s introduction to non-profit work was as an AmeriCorps volunteer in Immokalee. In June of 1997, she became the first campaign Director of the United Way of Collier County and remained in that position through last year. When United Way elevated her position to Vice-President, Agency Relations and Community Impact, she assumed the responsibility for coordinating thirty agencies, multiple boards, committees and donors for community initiative funding efforts. Her resumé for what she has done while working for United Way is most impressive. She anticipates continuing and expanding her contributions to our community as a member of the Neighborhood Health Clinic.

Shannon Anderson has a long-standing relationship with the Neighborhood Health Clinic and the Lascheids. While working for United Way, she frequently brought groups to the Clinic and always found these potential donors to be amazed at the organization and mission of the Neighborhood Health Clinic. Shannon is not reluctant to describe the Clinic as her “poster child” of what a charitable organization should be and how it should be operated. When given the opportunity to join the Neighborhood Health Clinic, she admits to being “thrilled and somewhat in awe” of working with Nancy, “Dr. Bill” and Leslie Lascheid, as well as the other members of the Clinic’s family.
