Shannon Ware and Melody Jennings Bowers met while doing virtual freelance work for a local marketing company. It didn’t take long to realize that their strengths were a match. Melody is passionate about helping clients navigate the process of turning an idea into something tangible. Shannon finds talented contractors and creates internal systems that keep communication flowing and projects moving forward. They combined forces, mapped out a logical and less chaotic approach to the virtual work world, and launched Virtual Collective.

From their own freelance work experiences, Shannon and Melody built a network of vetted contractors who provide stellar digital services, allowing them to create personalized virtual teams based on work styles, skills and rates. Virtual Collective delivers the exact services a client needs to accomplish their goals, and simplifies a process that many business owners find time-consuming and daunting.

Both Melody and Shannon were born near Jacksonville, Florida…have an unusual fascination with the town of Marfa, Texas…and now call Nashville, Tennessee home. Shannon enjoys life with her husband Benji and young daughter Elsie, and Melody stays active thanks to her two teenagers Mary and Luke.

Shannon and Melody are results-driven women. Each one brings her own set of strengths to Virtual Collective that creates a force of effectiveness, and they share the common goal of giving their clients and contractors everything they need to succeed. It is their passion. Kind of like the Wonder Twins? Sure. Why not?
