From Financial Maven to Mental Health Champion
Renowned for co-founding the industry’s premier Impact Investing Investment Bank, Big Path Capital’s success, lauded by Barron’s as “Impact Investing’s Investment Bank,” speaks to his commendable professional trajectory. However, it’s his recent personal journey through anxiety and depression that fuels his passion for THE REAL Mental Health Foundation. Drawing strength from his personal experiences of enrolling in two mental health treatment centers where he earned the candid nickname “Shaky”, Shawn endeavors to find purpose out of his pain. His story, and those of others, are being spotlighted through “The Real Talks”, shedding light on the raw, unfiltered truths of mental health.
