Mikaela interviews Shannon Anderson from Madrona Venture Group.

Shannon Anderson, a self-described "startup junkie" is the Head of Talent for Madrona Venture Group. She loves just about everything that comes with working in venture capital. Shannon advocates for taking the long view. She herself is a builder, who thrives on helping companies scale and coaching leaders along the way. What's most rewarding, Shannon says, is not just the investments you make but the impact you can have on the community as a whole.

Mikaela is a Founder/CEO and executive coach. In 2015, she founded Reverb, to help companies create healthy, inclusive cultures that scale. Last year, Reverb was named as the second fastest growing company in the state by PSBJ. Before Reverb, Mikaela held HR leadership roles at several Northwest companies. She enjoys being part of the Seattle startup community, where she gets to work with mission driven leaders. Her book Female Firebrands: Stories and Techniques to Ignite Change, Take Control, and Succeed in the Workplace was released in January 2020.
