Shawn Villalpando Owner of Gate City Foundation Drainage
Shawn obtained a Master's Degree in Biology/Environmental Science from Appalachian State University in 2007. With a true passion for helping others, he proceeded to become a collegiate level educator of Biology, Anatomy, Physiology, and Environmental Science for roughly twelve years.
Throughout his youth (and to primarily pay his way through college), Shawn thoroughly enjoyed buying, repairing, and selling Saturn vehicles. With a knack for fixing things, he decided to venture into larger renovation projects on the side during his years of teaching. In 2019, after successfully creating drainage solutions for multiple rental properties, he began Gate City Foundation Drainage.
During the course of his earlier career to present day, he has created and shared online videos of his drainage work- all in an effort to help others. Shawn's transparency, and honest work ethic is highly admired and has rewarded him with a loyal YouTube audience. During his down time, he enjoys traveling the country to ride his mountain bike and scuba diving for Megalodon teeth.
Shawn's education and love for science plays a huge role in GCFD's ability to see the bigger picture, and to know how certain geographical areas/soils will successfully drain.
