Episode 26 - Shonna Shearson (April 2023)
This month we are flipping the script on our very own Shonna Shearson, and she doesn't see it coming. If you've listened before, you know that Shonna usually interviews our Frogcast guests alongside Nate. But in light of her exciting new career news we decided this was the month Shonna should be the guest, and we aren't going to tell her that until after we start recording. Shonna has served in leadership roles with Valley Strong Credit Union for the last 23 years, most recently as SVP of Operations, but in a few short weeks Shonna will begin serving as CEO for U.S. Community Credit Union in Sacramento. Since graduating from WCMS with High Honors Shonna has been a huge supporter of the school by being a project reader, serving on the Alumni Association Board, and becoming a podcast personality. In today's episode, after recovering from the surprise, Shonna discusses her journey to this point in her career, how she prepared for the opportunity to become CEO, and the impact WCMS had in her professional growth. If you are looking for an honest and enlightening story about one new CEO's path, and an unconventionally unrehearsed and unedited interview, this is your episode!
