Shawn Leamon

Chief Strategist

Outside of work, I have two loves: ultra-endurance events and travel.

Over ten years ago, I left the world of investment banking and wealth management in NYC to branch out on my own. I first combined my love of law with my desire to help people make smart financial decisions in a series of resources called “Divorce and Your Money.” Then I developed LaGrande Marketing to help law firms grow their practices. For the full story, check it out in my book or reach out to me at

I’ve been to over 30 countries, and my goal is to get to 100.

Teresa Tran

Chief Operating Officer

If you're not laughing, you're not living.

After working in a variety of roles for most of my life, I have realized that being resourceful is the key to supporting anyone in any industry. I like to work “behind the scenes” to bring things to life.

Some of my favorite times are spent enjoying photography, scrapbooking, and—believe it or not--dog grooming.

Marketing Strategist

“Character consists of what you do on the third and fourth tries.” – James A. Michener

I have over 17 years of marketing experience. After spending most of my career centered in the field of higher education, I joined LaGrande four years ago. Working with so many different types of law firms is a challenge I relish.

Instead of sending traditional Christmas cards, in my family, we photoshop ourselves into different situations to create unexpected holiday greetings.

Lauren Stephenson

Project Manager

“When you convert a good book to a film, stupid things happen.” – Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl

I worked in the creative industry for around eight years and served in various office roles for about four years. At LaGrande Marketing, I get to help channel creative talents to produce bottom line results.

One time I went with a friend just to “look” at dogs from a rescue center. Now I have a dog…


Kendall Shue


You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.

Before I started working for LaGrande Marketing, I taught English and Social Studies to middle school and high school students for nine years. Those kids taught me how to adapt quickly to changing situations and explore new opportunities.

I’ve traveled all over Europe. London is always where I’d rather be!

Shelby Powell

Newsletter Strategist

"Quality is not an act, it is a habit…" - Aristotle

I’m an Army veteran who transitioned into both the state and federal level contracting. After years of dedicated service to the government, I moved to the private sector where I have spent the last several years working with businesses to develop effective marketing strategies and drive demand. According to Newton’s third law, if there is a problem there must be a solution.

I love spending weekends with my family and watching my kids play ball.

Lauren Tilden

Marketing Support Strategist

For several years, I worked for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee where I developed skills in communication, organization and an appreciation of the legal process. My background in fine and digital arts creates a unique toolset when combined with my administrative skills, which enables me to understand the overarching creative vision of a project while successfully managing each step to bring it to fruition.

I enjoy a day spent in nature: gardening, raising goats and chickens or painting!

Kari Elder

Marketing Support Strategist

Over the past seven years, I have worked as an administrative assistant in the non-profit, marketing, and communication sectors. Because of this, I have cultivated skills in project management, website editing, and virtual assistance.

I love listening to audiobooks or podcasts and baking every new recipe I find.

Kate Dolan

Legal Writer

Words are like pieces of broken glass. They can cut if you’re not careful. And if you just pile them up, they look like trash. But when you fit them together in a certain way, you can see art in the result.

I’ve been writing professionally since I graduated law school in 1992, but I detoured from legal writing and editing for several years to focus on fiction, journalism, and marketing copy. When I returned to writing about legal topics, I felt that the experience in other fields improved my ability to explain legal concepts.

My characters take over when I write fiction. I forget that I’m supposed to be in charge.

"Always walk through life as if you have something new to learn, and you will." - Vernon Howard

My career focus has primarily been on client services and project management with large companies, small businesses, and non-profits. I love using my skills and experience to see great visions come together strategically.

Weekends find me hanging out with family, drinking bold coffee, listening to soulful music, and playing with power tools.

WordPress Developer

One of my most interesting projects was building a private intranet for a casino.

As a WordPress developer with five years of experience building themes, plugins, widgets, and shortcodes, I also regularly work with REST APIs, PHP, JavaScript, and XML imports. I have managed projects and developed websites for many clients including professional baseball leagues.


WordPress Developer

Building new solutions and products has always been my passion, and that's why I've been working for over 10 years with the development of websites and digital products for different types of segments and industries, specializing in front-end and WordPress because together they can bring efficient and quick solutions to a variety of problems.

In my free time, I like to spend time with my relatives and friends, play with my dog, or go for a bike ride.
