I have had the privilege of working with Shauneen for many years in her volunteer capacity for a variety of leadership roles in Oregon state. She has been involved in her local chapter since the early 2000s, was chapter president from 2010 to 2011, and again took over the reins as chapter president from 2014 to the present.
Shauneen is passionate about volunteering. She has stepped up at the local level when others dropped out. She has volunteered at the SHRM national conference in Las Vegas (an experience that she really enjoyed and highly recommends others do) and has become very involved at the state council level as well.
Shauneen was an HR manager for the Oregon State Department of Corrections for almost nine years. She decided to make a change and joined the Oregon State Risk Management department (Risk Management insures and protects the people, property and activities of state government. They insure what others won't: The unique, diverse and often hazardous business of state government. Their experts recommend mitigation strategies to minimize or prevent the cost of loss, both minor and catastrophic. When loss does occur, they manage the claim process that lets state agencies fiscally recover and carry on with their mission). A change that she has fully embraced and loves.
Throughout her career, she has always stayed active with SHRM at the local and national level. She is as passionate about golfing as she is about volunteering. She has passed the love of the game on to her son, who has turned into quite the accomplished golfer. She loves to travel – Mexico being one of her favorite vacation spots.
She is a giver. She gives her time, her expertise and money to a profession and an association (SHRM) that she truly believes in.
Thank you, Shauneen, for all that you do for your chapter, your company and the HR profession.
