Shannon Reese joined the Small Nation team in 2018 as a Project Manager / Administrative Assistant. She is responsible for streamlining internal processes and task management within the team, as well as coordinating and planning meetings, events and the many tours municipality leaders and prospective developers take of Bellefontaine.

Shannon joins us after working in emergency services, customer relations and visitor’s services, so she is well-suited for juggling the fast-moving complexities of SmallNation’s businesses and projects. She believes that Small Nation’s work isn’t just about the buildings; It gives people a feeling of pride in their community that they didn’t know they had.

She lives in Indian Lake with her sons Gavin and Mason. When she’s not working you can usually find her at the baseball field, either watching her kid’s games or rooting for her Major League favorite.

In Shannon’s words:

What was your first job?

The Donut Shop – Indian Lake Oh. (yum)

Doing my best work under pressure!!

What motivates you? Why do you get up every day to do this kind of work?

To be a part of something bigger than myself.

What are 3 personal beliefs or values you hold strong to and act in support of?

  1. That there is something good in everything; its there, it just needs to be found

What do you know for sure? (it could be anything)

I know that no matter where I am or what I am doing, when “Don’t Stop Believing” from Journey comes on… I will sing.
