Shawn attended post secondary school at Mars Hill University in North Carolina on a golf scholarship where he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration in 2003. Upon graduation he pursued professional golf for a few years where he played on several mini-tours including the Canadian Tour. After realizing life as a golf professional was not for him, he returned to Canada to join Walsh & Company in 2005, obtaining his CA designation in 2008, U.S. CPA designation the following year and CFP designation in 2013. Shawn’s versatile education allows him to provide advice to clients in a variety of areas including expanding into the U.S., corporate structuring and estate planning. Shawn enjoys the challenges and variety offered by public accounting; his passion for client service and pragmatic, results oriented approach go well with the owner-managed and non-profit organizations that he serves.
In his spare time, he continues to be active in sports, particularly running and golf. Shawn is also actively involved in his church and dedicated to his wife and sons.

Holly initially joined Walsh & Company as a co-op student in 2005. After completing a Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) degree from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2007, she was pleased to join Walsh & Company as a full-time employee. She went on to complete her CA designation and was admitted to membership in 2009. Holly enjoys working with owner-managers because she believes it allows her to see all aspects of the business – something she feels is necessary to provide the financial advice clients seek. She also feels privileged to have the opportunity to work alongside not-for-profit organizations and assist them to achieve their objectives. Clients and staff enjoy her dedication and personable nature.
Outside of the office, Holly is a loyal Toronto Blue Jays fan. You are likely to find her watching or playing baseball, if she isn’t chasing after her two young sons of course! Holly also enjoys the simple pleasures of reading, cross-stitching, and spending time with family and friends.
