Director of Business Development
Shawn is proud to be born and raised in the 757 and call this wonderful region home. After graduating from Kempsville High School in 1997 where he excelled on the football field and wresting mat earning multiple championships Shawn continued his education at Longwood College and Old Dominion University pursuing an understanding of advanced communications and business.
Shawn has over 20 years of experience in the landscape design/build industry. This started in his late teens working as a yard hand for a local landscape company, A&R, where he fell in love with plants and the benefits they carry. Eventually the industry turned toward complex Hardscapes and the rest as they say is history.
Shawn has spent his career accumulating industry certificates. These include but are not limited to ICPI level 1 & level 2 Advanced Residential Technician, Level 1 Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional(CBLP), NCMA Segmental Retaining Wall certified installer, and received the Master Craftsman designation from Belgard Hardscapes. His understanding of these complex systems and how to use them to achieve the vision of our customers makes him a valuable asset.
Shawn remains very active in the local community and has a wide range of philanthropic interests. Shawn sits on the Virginia Horticultural Foundation board as the Chairman. He is very active with Great Neck Pony Baseball and the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater. Giving back to the community that provides such an amazing lifestyle for his young family is something that Shawn and his beautiful wife Ashley are very passionate about. They share a loving home with their children Martin & Breckin in Chics Beach.
