Shawn Mountcastle


Finance Director | Ambassador of Random Magical Things

Shawn is a burnt-out poet and painter-turned-entrepreneur who has worked in the publishing, healthcare, insurance and tech industries. She has interfaced with startups, early stage ventures and nonprofit organizations throughout her career. She has a particular interest in organizational development, focusing on business growth and change strategy as a means to create equitable and just work environments.

Seemingly random events of life and career led her to Soul Shoppe at the end of 2016. “It has been personally transformative to be part of this community of changemakers and to play a part in bringing these fundamental skills to children.” She wishes that Soul Shoppe had been part of her elementary school experience.

Shawn holds a master’s degree in Social and Clinical Psychology and is a certified facilitator for both Appreciative Inquiry and The Human Element organizational development systems.

On the side, she’s obsessed with bringing a vegan food product to market.
