FOUNDER, CEO & QUALIFIED INSPECTOR 164
A graduate of Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Science (Zoology) degree, Shawn started his career in the x-ray profession while serving in the US Navy, working on electronic warfare and radar systems. After serving in the Persian Gulf War, he was honorably discharged in 1991 and began servicing civilian medical, dental and veterinary x-ray systems.
Over the 20+ years he worked as a service technician, Shawn focused on x-ray machines, covering everything from dental intra-oral machines to the current Dental and Vet CBCT/3D imaging systems—installing, diagnosing and repairing them across Colorado and the western US. During those years, he participated in numerous manufacturer training courses while providing training to inexperienced technicians and office staff, earning a reputation among his customers and peers as a superb technician and outstanding instructor in the areas of dental, veterinary and CBCT/3D technology.
In 2007 Shawn earned his license to conduct x-ray machine Certification Evaluations as a Colorado Qualified Inspector. In 2011 he started Flatirons X-Ray Services, LLC, focusing on providing best in class x-ray machine inspections available in the state of Colorado.
Shawn currently lives in Louisville, CO with his beautiful bride, Sheila; two rescued mutts, Rio and Zoey and a sassy Sun Conure named Mango. When not running their respective businesses, Shawn and Sheila love to travel in their Sprinter campervan on all the backroads they can find to explore along with their dogs and even occasionally with Mango.
