Shawnte Cavanaugh

Nonprofit Accounting Specialist

Shawnte was born and raised in Ohio, where she graduated from Ashland University with a Bachelors of Science in Finance. After working in the accounting field for several years, she went back to Ashland University to get a Masters in Business Administration degree while raising her young daughter. Shawnte has worked and gained most of her experience in medium to large organizations, with a focus on financial statement accounting.


In 2004, Shawnte and her daughter moved to Colorado to join her soon-to-be husband who was serving in the United States Army. During her husband’s deployments, Shawnte took a break from accounting to take care of their three children. Once coming back to the workforce, she worked for a non-profit that provided services for people with intellectual developmental disabilities - making this job very rewarding. Shawnte is excited to join the Altruic team to continue working with non-profit organizations.

Shawnte lives in Fountain, Colorado, with her husband and two children. Her oldest daughter is married and living in Virginia. In her free time, you will find her spending time with her family, Facetiming with her out-of-state family, walking, and watching football (Go Bengals!).
