Mr. C

Shannon Carl currently works in the biotech industry for a Fortune 50 company. He is a Penn State graduate, with a B.Sc in Biology, focused in vertebrate physiology; he also possesses an MBA from the University of Phoenix, focused in Project Management. During the years between these two educational stints, Shannon worked for a number of high-profile bio-pharmaceutical companies, including Amgen and Pfizer, supporting the manufacture of high-quality protein therapeutics and serving as a trainer and subject-matter expert in this field, helping develop other associates into quality operators; from these experiences, Shannon derives much of his skill in teaching math and a wide variety of sciences. Also during those years, he worked as a technical writer, developing training documents, operations procedures, formulation records, and regulated record documentation, built on the quality of his writing and English skills.
