Very nice design!
I do think that the emblazonment would be even better if the lion on the shield was the same white version of Argent as the lower part of the shield - stronger visual contrast with the blue on which it lies.

Here is my version. I felt that the Azure of the original was too washed out and more like Blue Celeste, so made it more Azure and less Blue Celeste; this also helps with the visual contrast between the blue and the white. I also felt that, according to the blazon, the lion need not be constrained by the chevron as it was blazoned "in chief" rather than on the chevron reversed and enhanced.
