Shawna was born and raised near Pella, Iowa, but she has enjoyed living across the country. The “Dutch girl” craved more excitement after graduating from Graceland University in 2002, so she headed out west. She pursued marketing opportunities in San Francisco while completing her master’s degree in marketing from Keller Graduate School. In 2007, Shawna returned to her Midwestern roots and has spent the last several years in management and marketing positions in Des Moines.
Beyond the walls of Lessing-Flynn, you’ll find Shawna in the great outdoors – biking, running and enjoying the city’s local events. Plus the past three years, Shawna has served on the Board of Directors for Amanda the Panda, a non-profit organization that provides free support services to grieving families. She enjoys volunteering as the Event Chair for their annual Colors of Hope 5K Festival.
Help us welcome Shawna to the Lessing-Flynn team! We’re happy to have her. (And, maybe she’ll teach us all how to get as buff as she is…just maybe)
