Shawna Flavell joined the McHenry County Conservation Foundation as Executive Director in 2018 after three year working for The Nature Conservancy in Illinois. As a resident of McHenry County, Shawna is thrilled to have the opportunity to lead the Foundation and its strategic efforts to advance fundraising in support of critical conservation work in McHenry County.
Shawna graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a B.A. in Creative Writing. Always looking to marry her passion for the environment with her love of story, she is happiest listening to people share their stories about nature's impact on their lives.
