Realizing Her Passion for Politics

As she watched the late Texas Governor Ann Richards speak at the 1988 National Convention, Shawna realized she was a Democrat. In her early years, she played saxophone for President Bill Clinton, lost the race for FSU Student Body President handily, and was nominated by her boss to join Governor Jeb Bush’s technology advisory team during his re-election bid.

Shawna grew up in a small Texas town and graduated from a predominantly Black high school. Those experiences constituted a unique and culturally diverse background that helps her appreciate different perspectives & experiences — and search for ways to share them far and wide. Shawna carries that mindset into her politics as she endeavors to find common ground & shared values whenever possible. She credits those skills — and her Southern stubbornness, which emerges when she fights for people who are bullied, marginalized, or victimized — with her success in passing legislation and generating meaningful change in over thirty states.

After being invited to join a certain “long-shot” campaign for president in 2008, Shawna found her love for political media. Her life was forever altered by the chance to play a small role in mobilizing America toward a hopeful & historic victory for President Barack Obama. She pivoted from technology & social media to a full-time career in political and media strategy. Ever since, Shawna has had the pleasure of working alongside phenomenal public servants again and again.
