Shawn holds two master’s degrees. She’s also an ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified personal trainer, an E-RYT 200-hour yoga teacher, a certified barre instructor and a USA Weightlifting Level 1 Coach.

She has been an athlete all of her life, having run a number of road races, including a full marathon. One time, she won a frozen turkey in a mountain bike race.

As a founding member, Shawn has been with F.I.T. from the very beginning. She’s trained in MPT, APT, and most recently made her way to the platform with Olympic Weightlifting as part of the West Madison Weightlifting Team. At the age of 48, she holds two Wisconsin State Masters Records in Weightlifting.

In 2018 she joined the F.I.T. team as PR Manager, and in 2019 she took on a second role as an Assistant Coach.

Shawn loves Starbucks and her Frenchie more than most anything in life – but her two boys and husband do make it into the top ranks too.
