Shawn is a certified Life Coach and Workshop Facilitator. 


Through her pioneering work, she helps parents with special needs children achieve transformational shifts in their family dynamics, professional lives, and personal experiences. The underlying issues are rarely what the client initially believes the issues to be. Fulfillment and joy are possible. She helps you find it.


Shawn’s proudest accomplishments include raising 3 compassionate young men, including one with special needs, completely re-engineering her life in her mid 50s to include infinitely more joy and purpose, founding Pacific Ridge School ( a highly successful independent, college prep middle and high school in Carlsbad, CA, and getting herself to the top of the many peaks and mountains she has climbed (figuratively and literally).
