Shawn was born in Dodge City, Kansas and has resided in many different places since he was born. He lived in Dodge City most of his childhood until he was in middle school when his family moved to Elkins, Arkansas. He moved back to Jetmore, Kansas when he was a junior in high school and graduated from Hodgeman County High School. He attended community college in Dodge City where he received his associates degree. After he graduated from DCCC, he moved to Manhattan, Kansas where he obtained his bachelor’s degree in financial services.
After graduating from Kansas State University, he started his career in the banking industry at KS StateBank in Manhattan. He eventually moved to Washington State for a few years and worked for Harborstone Credit Union while living there. He decided to move back to Dodge City so he could be closer to his family and started working in accounting for Smoll & Banning, CPAs, LLC before joining the Chamber in November of 2022.
During his off time, Shawn likes to spend time with his family, talk and hang out with his friends, ride his bike, swim, snow ski, hike, read, watch movies, and enjoys spending time with his cats as he is an animal lover.
Shawn is ecstatic to be employed for the Dodge City Area Chamber of Commerce and to see what the future will hold for him during his time working for the Chamber.
