The traveling woman from Pittsburgh, PA, finds a home in Oregon.
Shawna is a woman who loves to move around. After attending the University of Pittsburgh and Indiana University of Pennsylvania for undergraduate degrees in English and religious philosophy, she moved cross country and got her M.B.A. at Pacific University in Oregon. During her time at Pacific University, she got the opportunity to study abroad in London. Interesting note, an item on her bucket list is to visit all seven continents and despite her displeasure towards cruises, will one day make it to Antarctica.
Prior to joining the Business Operations team at FP Transitions, Shawna could be found working with pre-school children at a Jewish community center in upstate New York. She has lived in several states but what has made her fall in love with Oregon is the variety of food that Portland has to offer. In her down time, Shawna can be found reading, cooking, or exploring the food scene with her two kids as they continue to get acclimated to life in the Pacific Northwest.
In her role as operations coordinator, she is tasked with continuing day-to-day operations while assisting with events such as business travels, conference logistics, and prepping webinars.
Comic Con participant, experimental kitchen ninja, and one dapper fella!
Keoni is the receptionist and the face of FP Transitions. He keeps the whole office on track with a warm smile, friendly conversation, and an optimistic, can-do attitude. He landed here after working in the printing business as a receptionist and social media manager. He also filled the prestigious role of editor-in-chief of an employee newsletter.
Keoni is an Oregon native. He earned a B.A. from the University of Oregon in journalism and communications. Keoni’s passion for sports and competing can be rooted in his days of playing high school sports. He enjoys watching and participating in both football and dragon boat racing. He has recently "retired," however, from dragon boat racing—giving him more time to go to the gym, get his creative juices flowing in the kitchen, and attend Portland’s next comic book convention.
