A Tacoma native, Shawn has been with Pilkey-Hopping & Ekberg since 2004. Shawn began her career in the insurance industry 43 years ago. This vivacious single mom is a very proud parent of two: Patrick and Sierra. Shawn is the middle-child of her family, sandwiched between two sisters and three brothers. Her favorite things in life: New England Patriots (picked as a child because of their helmet design); jigsaw and crossword puzzles; giraffes (check out her desk if you come into the office), anything Irish (especially Shamrocks) and junior mints. In 2008, Shawn traveled to Ireland where she had lots of fun finding other McClains & seeing her heritage. If Shawn was not in insurance, her career choice would be a pharmacist. When she retires, a waterfront property some place nice and peaceful is on the top of her list besides winning the lottery of course.
