Work experience prior to joining SFM:

Shawna has spent the last 15 years of her professional career honing vital skills for providing an exceptional client experience – including specialized training in client service, leadership, conflict resolution, estate law, and business office practices.  Prior to joining the SFM Team, Shawna worked as the Director of Client Services for a firm specializing in creating high-end integrated audio, video, and technology solutions for clients with luxury homes.  She is also particularly proud of her prior role with the State of Montana Department of Revenue where she audited license applications, assisted in rule writing, led software adoption and training, and was ultimately appointed by the Department of Revenue Director to be a member of the ICCW (Interagency Committee for Change by Women).

Role at SFM:

As a Client Relationship Specialist, Shawna focuses on all facets of client service while assisting new and existing clients with opening new accounts, transferring assets, and any other required account maintenance.

When not in the office:

Shawna “is living her best life with the man of her dreams.” She and Luke have a small woodworking business that has afforded them an opportunity to develop relationships in the woodworking community all over the world. They actively support the local community by donating custom tables, frames, and other handmade items for fundraising events. She enjoys snowmobiling all winter and camping all summer on the Yaak river where they run a small engine dredge on the family gold claim. She loves spending time with her growing family, including two grandchildren and a soon-to-be daughter-in-law. She loves learning new things and truly has a passion for helping others.
