Shawn has actively worked out since her early 20’s when she discovered it was the best method for relieving her lower back pain. She became more serious when she fell in love with weight training. When she found pilates over 12 years ago, she found the perfect mix of strength, flexibility, and mind body awareness. In 2013, she became Pilates Mat certified at Tone Fitness under Sonya Synder’s tutelage.
Shawn’s passion is business. She received her Masters of Business Administration from the University of Redlands and has held positions in Sales, Marketing, Operations, and Supply Chain Planning for several large corporations. After moving to Santa Rosa in 2012, she decided to embrace her entrepreneurial spirit, ultimately opening her own small business Cookie Cutters, Haircuts for Kids. She loves learning while doing and is enjoying the opportunity to broaden her business knowledge by diving into the fitness industry with Breathe Diversity Pilates.
