Our Team

Shaunacy Webster, M.A.





As the Chief Operating Officer for a small nonprofit, Shaunacy realized many companies and nonprofits would benefit from COO to operationalize a strategic vision on a daily basis, but few organizations have the luxury of making a dedicated hire with the supporting staff to implement the operations roadmap. As Founder and President of Webster Consulting Group, Shaunacy provides small to medium size organizations with fractional COO support and a seasoned team of experts to establish and integrate the functional areas of operations to translate growth goals into reality.

Shaunacy holds B.A. from Ohio Dominican University in Psychology with a concentration in Business Administration and M.A. from New York Institute of Technology in Communications with a specialization in Public Relations and Advertising. She has experience working within Fortune 500, top educational and research, an internationally recognized science center, an international corporate training company,  and community nonprofit organizations, including Nationwide, The RAND Corporation, The Ohio State University, Mindleaders, COSI, Columbus Montessori Education Center and Chabad Columbus - Home to LifeTown. She is co-author of the Stop to Live curriculum - the only prescription drug education initiative for children with special needs. She speaks on topics related to interactive education and training and believes learning should be fun.
