Shawn grew up in Franklin, Wisconsin, loving the Green Bay Packers and the Milwaukee Brewers.
He lives in Wauwatosa with his wife, Liz, and their three kids and two dogs.
As a member of the Wauwatosa School Board, Shawn led efforts to drive student achievement outcomes on state report cards to record highs, close student achievement gaps - and personally met with the Morgridge family to secure a $7 million donation to reimagine the Wauwatosa East High School pool.
Until he recently passed, Shawn served as the financial power of attorney for his 99-year-old grandfather, Art. As an active caregiver, Shawn understands how important it is to create a better experience for seniors and their loved ones. The status quo has got to go.
Shawn spends his "free time" taking in his kids' academic and athletic events, walking the dogs, volunteering for community causes, and grabbing dinner with Liz.
