Shawnee Salazar

Account Executive

Aspirations and Goals as a Human Being:

To grow in knowledge and understanding of not only the world around me, to go above and beyond for those who need me, to be a light for my husband, an anchor for my friends and family, and to be an inspiration for my daughter.


Experience, Education and Credentials:

  • BA Business Management – Texas Tech University

I have researched organizational behavior, marketing strategies, international management, team leadership, human resources, ethics, and varying other topics in detail. I have worked in problem solving and customer service for years, and maintain a learning mindset for any and all future lessons I encounter.


What do you like to do when you’re not working?

I have a passion for fitness, nutrition, and wellness. I also like to travel, listen to true crime podcasts/watch true crime documentaries, and spend time with friends and family.

Favorite quote:

“Being courageous is doing things despite the fear. You build your courage muscle by continuing to face your fear.”

–Sarah Blakely of Spanx


Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us:

 When I was little I hated the taste of milk, so in daycare I would tell the teachers I was lactose intolerant, just so I didn’t have to drink milk. This con went on for years.


Tell us three things most people don’t know about you:

  • I think that if I wear a necklace to sleep it’s going to suffocate me.
  • If I don’t consciously control my facial reactions they can get out of hand. (think Jim Carrey)
  • I sprint through my house when the lights are off because I feel like I’m being chased by a serial killer.


Three words to best describe you:

Kind. Helpful. Resilient.

Anything else you want to share (family, hobbies, whatever)

I’m the youngest of three girls so not much surprises me nor hurts my feelings.


What do you like most about Slate Group?

The people at Slate Group are the best asset of the company. Not because of human capital, but because Slate Group has created a family focused friendly environment that has been filled with a fun loving “what can I do to help you” mentality.


What do you like most about your role at Slate Group?

New challenges arise every day, no situation is ever the same. I get to learn and grow, and meet new and interesting people along the way.


What drew you to Slate Group originally?

Everyone here wants to see you succeed, no matter if it’s here at work or at home or elsewhere. That kind of selflessness is contagious, and promotes an overall healthy way of life.
