Our Team

SHANNON WALLER, Executive Director

Shannon Waller grew up in Doylestown, attended college in Santa Barbara and law school in San Francisco. After practicing business law there for several years, she returned home to join Team Dynamics, the family business centered around Game Faces® temporary tattoos, which were innovated by her entrepreneurial father. When her parents retired, she became President of this national wholesale company. After a number of years, her parents wanted to sell the business to realize their investment. Shannon chose not to buy; instead, she became the Executive Director for the Medina County SPCA, then Chief Operating Officer of the Humane Society of Summit County. Most recently, she ran Business Writing Solved, a consulting firm writing custom corporate documentation. She missed doing work that made the world a better place, however and jumped at the chance to serve Main Street Wooster’s mission of improving the quality of downtown’s business and living environment.

After AU, he began as the Event Coordinator for Kingwood Center Gardens in Mansfield, OH, with the focus of driving business and planning/executing weddings and events.

Soon after, he became a sales/design associate with Roomscapes and Runions’ Furniture. Now, permanent residents of Wooster, he jumped at the opportunity to fill the position of Project Coordinator, helping to serve the needs of the community and growing the attraction that brought him here initially.
