Biography

State Representative Shawn Thierry represents House District 146, a district that covers numerous communities in the Southeast and Southwest parts of greater Houston.

Representative Thierry is a native Houstonian as well as a life-long resident of House District 146. Ms. Thierry spent her early childhood in the South Park community. She is the proud product of the public education system as she attended Patt Neff Elementary in the Sharpstown community. Her family subsequently relocated to the Fondren Southwest neighborhood (also in HD146) where she attended Welch Middle School and graduated from Westbury Senior High School. Ms. Thierry was admitted to Howard University in Washington, DC and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Broadcast Management and a minor in Business Administration. She went on to receive her Doctor of Jurisprudence from the renowned Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University in 1996. She has practiced law at the law firms of Jackson Walker, LLP and Wickliff & Hall, PC. Ms. Thierry is presently the proud solo practitioner of her own law firm, Law Offices of Shawn Thierry.

Shawn takes pride in her upbringing and comes from a very close-knit and hardworking family. She currently resides in the Northfield community of HD 146 with her daughter, Klaire Bijou. She enjoys cooking, reading, and most of all, giving encouragement to others who need support. Ms. Thierry deeply believes in giving back to her community and has volunteered and served on the boards of various professional, civic and charitable organizations. Shawn has been a member of Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church for thirty-five years.

From representing the rights of injured victims, employees, to assisting children and families needing legal recourse, Ms. Thierry is a strong advocate for protecting the interest of the underserved. Shawn possesses a stellar body of professional and community work and is known for her sharp negotiating skills.

Shawn cites that her personal life creed from the quote of Erma Bombeck, "When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and I could say, 'I used everything that you gave me.'"

Attorney Thierry looks forward to shaping good public policy on behalf of her constituents and being a formidable legislator in the great state of Texas.
