Speaker: John Shinner

IT Group Manager, Student of Life
John Shinner is a father of teens, a 29 year veteran in technology, a manager of teams, and a husband of 22 years. In other words, he is reminded daily that life can feel crazy, out of control, and stressful. 30 years ago at Whitman College where he earned a BA in Psychology, John started studying and practicing meditation and mindfulness. Throughout his career (currently a Group Manager in IT at Nordstrom), John has turned to his practices to help him maintain some semblance of sanity.
