Before beginning her sales career in 1980, Shauna taught elementary school and high school in the Newport Mesa School District. Wanting to enter the business world, she joined Minolta Business Systems where she received Minolta’s highest award for the most sales within the United States. “I was working with Fortune 500 companies on a daily basis and really learned the delicate art of negotiation, the importance of communication and the necessity of follow-up,” Shauna relates. She was later promoted to Sales Manager and led her reps to the top team in the nation.
Her first jobs were invaluable, but when she went to work for Covington Homes she found her true calling.
