I grew up in Janesville, Wisconsin, and was born into the insurance and securities business. My father, James Shaw, was a nationally recognized financial professional. He trained me and taught me the value of always putting my clients' needs first. I worked in the financial services industry for nearly 30 years and loved it from the beginning.
Mark and I have a son, Scott, who is married to Lacey. They are parents to our grandchildren, Peyton and Sawyer Rose. Scott is a pilot and Lacey was formerly a vet tech, but is now preparing for the arrival of their third child. Our daughter, Leslie, lives and works in the Minneapolis area. Just like our clients, family comes first in our lives and we are very fortunate our immediate family is happy and healthy.
