Shawneda is creative. She discovered this while writing over 20 books, blogging, recording podcasts, handbinding books, and working in corporate America. Her professional and personal experiences have taught her that clear, effective communication is the foundation for achieving your goals.

Becoming an author and launching GIGPowHer™ Press charted an unconventional career in STEM. Each story, website design, brand redesign, and book cover served as a guidepost that led to earning a Master’s in English, Technical Communication with a concentration on human computer interaction and instructional design before becoming a PMI certified Project Management Professional.
