Shawn & Shelley Desautels – This dynamic couple wear many hats in the community – Shelley is an
Okanagan College GIS instructor and owns her own business, Mighty Owl Mapping, while Shawn has
opened Whizbang Boxing, Salmon Arm’s newest boxing gym. They also have two teenaged boys. This
means they are looking forward to the chance to spend some dedicated time together learning to
dance. After all, it can’t be that different from learning to box – stay on your feet, watch your partner’s
moves and take a few jabs! The couple took a few dancing lessons for their wedding and do some
occasional dancing in their kitchen, but it’s a bucket list item to dance in front of an audience, especially
when it means supporting a local charity.
