Expert Education and Training, LLC (EET) was founded by Shawn Livingston in 2012 with the mission of providing professional program management, administrative, financial and support services to the federal government and commercial clients. As an Army Veteran, Shawn had extensive military experience draw upon when starting his business and saw some early success as a subcontractor to other small businesses and primes.
In 2015, Shawn’s sister Jackie decided to join his business to help move it to the next level. Recognizing the value of certifications, Jackie contacted the NC PTAC for assistance with the VA’s Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business verification. Jackie, Shawn, and their PTAC counselor had several meetings to review their application prior to submission. Their PTAC counselor also helped them address requests for explanation and additional documentation as their application was being reviewed. The team was ultimately successful and EET received SDVOSB verification in November of 2015. Since receiving the verification, Jackie and Shawn have continued to work with their PTAC counselor on finding opportunities, and have engaged with SBTDC general business counselors for marketing assistance.
