Shawn Whitt CEO

Shawn Whitt stepped into the role of CEO for Safe Harbor in August 2018 with an impressive background in both the treatment field as well as the financial realm. His passion to help others led him to proudly serving in the United States Marine Corps for 4 years. Post military service Shawn received his undergraduate degree in Business Administration from Vanguard University in Southern California and went on to pursue courses to become a Certified Financial Planner from Pepperdine University. He spent over 15 years in the financial sector earning various licenses and gaining experience in leadership roles. In addition to his vast breadth of knowledge in financial matters, Shawn possesses a heart for those in need. He strives to serve those struggling with substance abuse by opening his ears, eyes and heart. A quote by C.T. Studd guides him in the pursuit of caring for the addict who still suffers, “Some want to sit within the sound of a church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue booth, within a yard from hell.” The past 5 years have been spent working tirelessly in the behavioral health field to improve the lives of those struggling with addiction from all over the country. Shawn’s humble heart and strong vision has uniquely positioned him to be at the helm of our Safe Harbor team.
