After a successful career in broadcasting, Shawn chose to expand her media knowledge by pursuing an entrepreneurial venture. She noticed a gap between the role of an involved publicist and the client. She also noticed the need to offer publicity—let’s face it, every business, person or idea for that matter needs PR. Shawn runs the company to ensure it is superior! She works closely with client accounts to enforce branding, accountability and accuracy. She’s a firm believer that our success relies heavily on the clients’ success. Shawn focuses on intricate brand development through event planning that often times leave guests in awe. Her vision and determination makes for an environment where clients find family-attention to career assistance and guidance. Shawn’s success story is built upon wholehearted commitment and attention to detail. She is one of the very few successful females in an aggressive, male-dominated industry.

Exact provides the highest quality service for clients seeking marketing, public relations, event planning, management and charity work.
