Director Statement

Shannon Phipps is a writer/director based in Kansas City. After more than 13 years in corporate America, she quit her job to pursue her dream of writing/creating films. With years of material (i.e. corporate meetings, H.R. surveys, and climbing an endless ladder to nowhere) she decided to turn her tragic rat-race story into a comedy for the millions of worker bees across the planet to enjoy. Corporately Challenged is her directorial debut.
