About Shawna

Shawna is a mom of three kids,practical minimalist, and self-professed LadyNerd

She is a part-time Environmental Health Officer, working in Public Health, who took a hiatus from her career to raise her kids. 

While home with three kids under four, she turned to writing online and sharing her experiences with other women and moms. Over the decade, she has been sharing about her (messy but rewarding) decluttering journey, the awakening she had that she was living her life on autopilot, and her endeavours to live her life ON PURPOSE and be a mom on purpose. 

You can find all of these topics and more covered on the Simple on Purpose Podcast.

This personal journey has become a passion for her and in 2018 she became a trained Life Coach as a way to support other women who want to live their lives on purpose. She has been coaching women all over the world and ran the very popular Life on Purpose Academy Coaching Program for the year 2020. Recently, she has completed schooling to become a Counsellor. 


Her personal experiences and training has prompted her to create the Life on Purpose Roadmap as well as write the Life on Purpose Workbook, and Homemaker, on Purpose.

Shawna coaches moms all over the world on issues that keep them stuck. Her mission is to empower women to show up for their actual lives with more peace, purpose and presence.

She offers coaching from a Christian point of view, if the client wishes, as well as using the Enneagram (self-discovery tool). You can sign up for one on one coaching at any time you need it.

Shawna believes that we are meant to make choices about what matters to us in life (like quality cheese, simplifying our lives, and being an intentional parent) and that God’s grace covers everything.
