Shawn founded the Badger Den in 2018. They are currently working on a Masters degree in Applied Exercise Science at UW-Madison. Shawn received their B.S. in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Strength and Conditioning from UW Oshkosh in 2015.
She is a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin Madison studying kinesiology. She is a personal trainer and coaches the morning group classes. Her love for the gym started when she was on the track and field and cross country team in high school. Ella loved running with her friends but realized in order to become faster and stronger, she needed to start strength training. As a sophomore, she learned about lifting through the strength and conditioning class at school and has been intrigued ever since. While pursuing her degree at UW, she is proudly serving her country with the Air National Guard where her passion and love for weightlifting and fitness continues to grow. She was deployed to Saudi Arabia, where her dedication for lifting shined. Despite long days, she made time every day for the gym, so she could compete in the 500-pound club with her friends. Ella successfully achieved her goal of making it into the club just in time before coming back home. Eventually, her dream is to open her own gym and teach others the foundations of weightlifting.
