Shawna attended Lindsay Thurber Composite High School in Red Deer. She is an active member of her local church which she has been attending since she was twelve years old.

Shawna got into optometry because seven years ago she was looking for a change and felt The Eye Studio would be a good fit for her. And while she had no experience in optometry she had previously been a receptionist for 14 years at a family medical clinic and 8 years as a church administrator.

She was born in Whitehorse Yukon and moved to Red Deer when she was in grade 1. She loves to travel, to see the ocean and visit new places. She is the younger of two girls and has two girls of her own. She loves spending time with them whenever she can.

You can find Shawna making things run smoothly and keeping Dr. Holtom in line from her station at the front desk.
