Outside of Work
Shilo currently resides in Bothell with her husband, their adorable sons, and two furry felines. While raising two boys leaves little time for any major hobbies outside of work, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, gardening, volunteering, cooking, snow shoeing and one day hopes to ride horses again on a regular basis.
“Being with horses has taught me quite a bit about leading an organization,” said Shilo Lockett, president and member of CWM. “When you come down to it, you can't force a 1,500-pound animal to do what you want—it's about partnership and communication. The same principles apply to working with people. You have to be calm when you're working with horses, no matter what your day has been like. To me, riding is like yoga.”
