About Women in the Pet Industry Network ("WIPIN")
Welcome! I’m Shawna Schuh, President of this network. I feel very blessed and honored to be serving this membership.
Helping pet professionals prosper is what we do. It’s why we exist. You may never find another person or team that will work harder for you, believe in you, and provide you opportunities better than you will find here.
This network will, if you let it, make you a better business person, a better connector and a better leader.
The most important reason for you to join WIPIN is that you will become part of something magical where women leaders help themselves and each other, and better take their place in the pet industry as it continues to thrive and grow.
With 25+ years as a business owner and entrepreneur Shawna has the keen insights and perspective that help make Women in the Pet Industry Network work.
Shawna spends the time she isn’t feeding, cleaning and vacuuming pet hair, working with professionals as an executive/leadership coach and facilitator. She is a Master Practitioner in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and holds the prestigious Certified Speaking Professional (CSP) designation from the National Speakers Association, a title held by less than 8 % of speakers worldwide.
Shawna is an author, media personality and content provider who runs multiple enterprises from her 20 acres in rural Western Oregon. She shares her life with horses, dogs, and a cat.
