Shawn Shouldice

Shawn Shouldice has been representing clients for more than two decades before the legislative, administrative, and executive branches of Vermont state government. She has become noted for her success in implementing strong grassroots advocacy and media campaigns within and outside of Vermont.

Capital Connections, LLC was launched by Shawn in 2007, a government and public relations firm that is built on an in-depth knowledge of the state as a life-long Vermonter and on her more than 25 years of experience developing an expertise in legislative and regulatory issues management, grassroots advocacy, stakeholder engagement, and campaign and communication strategies.

Shawn's clients have included a wide variety of interests including large and small businesses in many economic sectors, local, state, regional and international trade associations, and non-profit organizations along with local philanthropies. Shawn has represented these interests before the Legislature and state administrative and regulatory agencies. She also has a long working relationship with Vermont's Congressional delegation and their staffs.

She has sharpened her skills over two decades of practice, but more importantly, has developed the asset that is essential for success and that comes only with experience: personal relationships with key government officials and staffs. These relationships, based on trust and past performance, have helped elevate Shawn as one of the best known and most successful advocates in Vermont. Shawn has served on the Board of Trustee for the Lake Dunmore/Fern Lake Association, served as a Board of Director of The Advocacy Group, and was appointed by Governor Jim Douglas to serve as the Vice Chair of the National Governor's Association Selection Committee for the NGA's Public-Private Partnership Awards.

Shawn has a B.A. in business administration from Merrimack College, an A.A. in business administration from Endicott College. A life-long Vermonter, Shawn, has three children; Will, Caitlin and Erin. Shawn is married to Michael H. McShane; they live in Montpelier, VT.
