Audra Shaneman

GateKeeper Client Manager

Department: GateKeeper

Audra Shaneman, GateKeeper Client Manager, has been with Golden Shovel Agency since May 2022. Audra has a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing, Institute of Organizational Management from the US Chamber, and 8 years as a Chamber of Commerce Executive. She was also formerly an Assistant City Manager with economic development responsibilities.

Audra’s day-to-day responsibilities include monthly meetings with clients, managing websites and updated requests, managing content requests, making content recommendations based on trending topics and client conversations, and reviewing analytics and website performance with clients. She looks forward to discussing community development and strengthening connections with her clients.

Audra’s favorite thing about working in economic development is that communities are built by businesses and on the foundation of business. If a community doesn’t have jobs, keeping residents and a tax base is hard. Each community is a unique ecosystem, and economic developers understand how things work together and where there are opportunities. They are usually community-minded people who want to see their community grow and prosper - and they need Golden Shovel’s help to do that.

Audra and her family currently live in New Ulm, MN. She grew up in the area and moved away for about 25 years, including the Twin Cities metro area and South Florida on the Treasure Coast for 8 years. She has two children in high school. She and her husband enjoy volunteering at the local community theater and arts center. Audra is also an independent contractor doing corporate events and small business marketing. A perfect day for her is brunch, beach and books, then coffee with girlfriends (after family, of course!).
