Shawn West

Shawn West has always had a fascination with how children grow and develop cognitively, which is why he studied child psychology in college. Now as a father of two young boys, Milo and Thatcher, he gets to play a role in that development first-hand.

As a principal at CuraFin Advisors, a Scottsdale-based investment management firm, he has taken his passion for teaching and development and harnessed it to help individuals and executives with their company and individual retirement plans.

Shawn’s passion to help has lead him to serve on various local boards and committees; TGen (Translational Genomics Research Institute), who’s focus on early childhood diseases has provided better outcomes for countless children and families. PCH50 (Phoenix Children’s Hospital Foundation), with a mission of providing hope, and the best health care for children and their families. The Governmental Affairs Committee for the National Association of Plan advisors, whose core mission is to work with congress and other government agencies in shaping and protecting legislation for retirement plans.

Attending the 2017 Dancing for Arizona’s Children, Shawn learned of the great work Arizona’s Children Association is doing in protecting children, empowering youth and strengthening families.

While Shawn has no formal training in dance, his love for music and dance goes back to his childhood days growing up in Chicago. Outside of the laugh his wife Aubrie might get, he hopes by putting himself in the hot seat, he can set a good example for his boys and raise some money for an amazing organization.
