Shawn Johnson 1996Shawn Johnson

Degree: Bachelor of Business - Management Information Systems from WIU in 1996

Business Information: Senior Business Analyst, Principal, Des Moines, IA. (I was recruited out of WIU and I have been there for 20 years since!)

Advice for Freshman: Staff members and faculty have your best interest in mind. Recognize that quickly so that you can learn from them and react appropriately.

Favorite WIU Memory: Walking across Q-Lot more in the summer than the winter, eating too much pizza late night at Northern Lights, the completely different experience of staying on campus in the summer vs. the school year, being involved with Inter-Hall Council and traveling for the various conferences.

Special Interests and Hobbies:  I spend most weekends at my lake cabin that is about an hour from my home. It's a fun place to relax and recharge. Time in the boat or the golf cart around the lake helps too!
