Shannon Griffin

Analyst, Philadelphia Office

Shannon’s unique background has made her inquisitive and able to connect with clients from diverse backgrounds.

Shannon joined U3 in August 2020 as an Analyst. Although her formal title is “analyst”, Shannon’s work traverses both operations and administrative responsibilities. She provides data analysis, research, and project management support. Shannon is driven by the potential of physical spaces and planning to address complex societal issues. Currently, she is working with Live6 Alliance to identify and support small businesses impacted by COVID-19 in Detroit’s Livernois-McNichols corridor.

Before joining U3 Advisors, Shannon resided in Shanghai, China for the past 3.5 years. Her experience abroad coupled with her undergraduate studies allows her to take an interdisciplinary and culturally sensitive approach to her work. Shannon’s studies focused on the impact of rapid urbanization on China’s ethnic minorities and the role of sustainable tourism in preserving the culture of aboriginal communities in Taiwan.

Shannon holds a BA in Chinese and Psychology from Bates College, where she was awarded the Alfred J. Wright Foreign Language Award and the Richard V. Wagner Prize in Psychology for her Chinese and psychology theses respectively.
