Parker Shaw

Parker Shaw joined us in April of 2024 with about 6 months of experience in the ABA field. Originally from the West Coast, he came over to Virginia in July of 2023 to pursue a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regent University, where he will graduate in 2025. During undergrad, Parker was a free safety on the Whitworth University football team in Spokane, Washington. Following the completion of a successful athletic career, Parker joined the football coaching staff at Whitworth while attending master’s classes online. He plans on pursuing a career as a mental health therapist for college and professional athletes, helping them to explore their identity as more than just an athlete. In his time off, Parker enjoys running, lifting, playing the guitar, and spending time with his cat named Dog.
