Shona Huffman
Texas Health Frisco

A native Texan and 15-year Frisco resident, Shona was elected to her first term on the Frisco City Council in 2016. She was subsequently selected by her peers in 2018 to serve as the Council’s Mayor Pro Tem.

Previously employed at the Frisco Chamber of Commerce focusing on governmental affairs, Shona now works as the Director of Community Relations for Texas Health Frisco.

Known to be a tireless advocate for the community of Frisco, Shona’s love of policy and politics began at the kitchen table during the 1976 Presidential Election. With the newspaper stretched out before him, Shona’s grandfather began explaining current issues and asked what role she would play in making this country a better place to live. Those early, simple conversations quickly gave way to questions and in-depth discussions of policy. A desire to learn more was born and has been growing ever since.

Shona has bachelor’s degrees from Southwest Baptist University (4 Majors—Political Science, History, Social Science Education, & Speech), as well as two master’s degrees in Communications and Political Science/Public Policy.

Prior to her role with the Frisco Chamber of Commerce, Shona was a nationally-recognized US Government, US & World History and Communications high school teacher. She coached Speech & Debate on the national circuit, working with high school students to find and improve their voice. She has a passion for articulate AND considerate discussion of tough issues that impact society. Over the years, she has worked with the Frisco ISD Independent Study and Mentorship program as a mentor to young women looking to make their own marks in the field of public policy.

Shona has two teenage daughters who attend Wakeland High School— Chloe, a junior, and Lilly, a freshman. Her greatest joys are cheering on Chloe, who dances on the drill team, and Lilly, who plays volleyball. Shona is an active member of Genesis Metro Church in Frisco. In her free time, she likes to read, watch movies, travel, and spend time with friends.
