New Staff Member Joins FD Family Resiliency Team

By Rosi Heins, Interim Program Leader — Family Resiliency

Shawn Thompson
Shawna Faith Thompson joins the Family Resiliency team today as the Carver-Scott County Financial Capability Extension Educator. Shawna obtained her bachelor's degree in Economic Development from Metropolitan State University in St. Paul and is certified as a personal finance coach, homebuyer counselor, and an IRS advanced-level volunteer tax preparer. Her career includes 10 years of educating low- to moderate-income clients on handling personal finances and building assets for two Twin Cities non-profits: EMERGE Community Development and WomenVenture. Shawna is passionate about credit building and asset development to move her clients toward financial stability.

I look forward to working with Shawna as she gets to know Extension and FD. Please say "hello" and welcome her on board.
