Shawna Gonzales, CPA

Chief Financial Officer

Shawna joined the First Choice Community Healthcare (“FCCH”) senior leadership team in the capacity of Chief Financial Officer in June of 2023. She is a certified public accountant with over 35 years of public accounting and not-for-profit financial leadership experience. A corporate mission of service and a very high standard of fiscal stewardship to enhance public trust have always been tenets of Shawna’s career. The decision to bring her wealth of experience and knowledge to FCCH was borne from a love of helping others and from observing the same passion thriving amongst the senior leadership team of FCCH. FCCH is known for providing high quality, cost-effective accessible healthcare to New Mexicans who may not have other options, so maintaining healthy financial stability is essential to this cause. The numbers of people served matter because it represents so much more than statistics – these are our children, our seniors, our veterans, and our neighbors who are seeking wellness and hope. Outside of her worklife, Shawna’s latest passion is watching her daughter participate in Special Olympics. She also enjoys spending time with her family. Being a native New Mexican, she appreciates and enjoys being out in nature in the “Land of Enchantment.”
