I was born and raised in Amory, Mississippi and am the proud mother of three lovely children. I voluntarily enlisted in the United States Airforce and gave my country 21 years of active duty service. During my time in the Airforce, I earned my Associate in Applied Science in Bioenvironmental Engineering from the Community College of the Air Force, my undergraduate degree in English from Mississippi University for Women, my Master of Public Administration from Georgia College and State University, and my Law Degree from the University of Mississippi School of Law.

I was also commissioned through the Officer Training School and worked as a Bioenvironmental Engineering Journeyman, Chief of Human Resource Management, Watch Supervisor for the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center, and an Assistant Professor at Mississippi State University where I taught Air Force Reserve Officer Training (ROTC). I was awarded the Defense Meritorious Service Medal and the Joint Service Commendation Medal for my service in Iraq.

I am now proud of having the opportunity to help other in their time of need as a lawyer at Simoes Davila. I give thanks every day for the opportunity I am provided daily to help my neighbors in this community through difficult times. I would be honored to help you, and I invite you to call me at (386) 222-1111 or email me at ShawndaF@simoesdavila.com.
