Where excellence begins ...

About Shon

As the eldest kid in a latch-key household, Shon learned how to feed her brothers and sisters, keep them entertained and maintain order — ideal training for her career in event planning and management!

Before launching Shon Barnwell Events, Shon spent 25 years on active duty with the United States Air Force, rising to the rank of Chief Master Sergeant. Her responsibilities included project management, human resource utilization, process improvement, logistics and consulting.

Shon served in numerous leadership positions at the squadron, group, wing, numbered Air Force and major command levels. She deployed in support of Operation Southern Watch in Bahrain, Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq, and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, retiring in 2014.

Previously, Shon served as a Business and Industry Services Specialist at Central Georgia Technical College developing and delivering On-demand Contract Training across nine counties.  She has served as the secretary for Delta Mu Delta Lamba Sigma virtual co-chapter (an international business honor society); and as a former board member of the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce and Family Promise of Greater Houston County.  Shon published her first book, “Leadership Is About Behavior, Not Titles” in 2021.

She serves as a mentor and lecturer to veteran entrepreneurs and resides in Georgia with her husband, Andre, and daughter, Aliyah.
