Shannon May


Hi there, I'm Shannon.

It's nice to meet you. I'm an adventurous girl from Florida with a passion for marketing and the great outdoors.

Years ago, I left my Florida flip-flops behind to start my career at a New York City advertising agency. Over the past eight years, I've worked in account management, live events, public relations, and social media. Some may call me the jack-of-all-trades, but I'd like to consider myself a curious marketer. A previous client once said that I have "a unique ability to create an idea and then execute it."

At Grey Advertising, I began as a PR Intern and quickly worked my way up to a Senior Account Executive role on the Activation team. During that time, I led successful integrated marketing campaigns, promotions, and events for 20+ brands, including Canon, HSBC Bank, and the NFL, and worked with Hollywood talent including Jamie Foxx, Ron Howard, and Eva Longoria.

After five years in the Big Apple, I put everything I learned to the test as a Freelance Marketing Consultant. Since then, freelancing has allowed me to work for amazing clients such as Kampgrounds of America (KOA) and Bayer, and in remote places such as Montana and Germany. Ja, ich kann ein bisschen Deutsch sprechen. Because I could work from anywhere, I also picked up a part-time gig at Big Sky Resort for the Winter 2016/2017 ski season to get a free ski pass.

While creating my schedule and pitching smart, savvy clients has indeed been an honor; I am hoping to step back into a full-time position. If you happen to know of any current marketing opportunities, that would be much appreciated.
