M.S. Management, Indiana Wesleyan University (2006); B.A. Political Science, Berea College (2001).


Shawn graduated from Berea College in 2001 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science. In 2006, he earned a Master of Science in Management from Indiana Wesleyan University.  

While a student at Berea, Shawn was active in Student Government where he served as SGA President his senior year. Berea’s labor program allowed Shawn to work as a Campus Ambassador with the Admissions office where he enjoyed collaborating with prospective students of the college. After graduation, Shawn spent 12 years working in the insurance industry while volunteering for various alumni programs with his alma mater. Through these experiences, Shawn realized his true career passion was in higher education and student development.

Shawn was attracted to the Mount because of its rich history, diverse population and strong mission/values. “The Mount enriches an environment of learning, labor, and service. I find it extremely fascinating that our students graduate with a great sense of community and character as well as the hands-on experience they will need to succeed”.  

In his spare time, Shawn enjoys spending time with his family and friends, is an avid moviegoer, and is a huge Cincinnati Reds fan.
