Shavon Lindley co-founded Women Evolution in 2012 after a difficult and frustrating search to find her own female mentor. After years of sacrificing her own health and happiness at the altar of success, she knew she needed to take control of her own career. Connecting with a female mentor who could relate to her own career and personal aspirations, offer candid advice and act as a sounding board was exactly what she needed.
Shavon quickly realized that finding a female mentor with the qualities she was looking for was no easy task. She knew that there were thousands of bright and driven women out there like her who could benefit from female mentorship – if they could only find it. She began to seek out and interview dozens of Fortune 1000 executive women to find how they were able to navigate the corporate landscape, have a family and maintain their happiness. What she learned became the foundation of Women Evolution.
Today, Shavon is a nationally recognized career and mentorship expert specializing in the advancement of women in typically male dominated fields. She began her career in 2004 in the financial services industry and quickly became her firm’s top producing representative in Southern California. She attributes much of her early success to working hard, being able to handle rejection and having a supportive, business-focused mentor.
Shavon grew up in Tulsa, Ok and received her BS in Mathematics from the University of Texas at Austin. She is an avid music lover with a ridiculously loud laugh and you can always find her at Coachella Music Festival. Currently, she lives in Del Mar, CA with her husband, daughter and 2 rescue dogs.
