Shawn is a true community organizer. She may even have problem-solving super powers – it is in her name, after all. A natural leader with an affinity for efficiency, she’s taken charge of ZERO’s efforts in the Mid-Atlantic region with the practiced ease of a pro – and that’s because she is one.
Shawn has touched the lives of thousands throughout her career, serving as the Mid-Atlantic Region Development Director for the Huntington’s Disease Society of America and as a Senior Coordinator with the Susan G. Komen Washington, DC 3-Day. Inspired by ZERO’s mission, Shawn is focused on engaging the community of men and families affected by prostate cancer in the Mid-Atlantic, one man at a time.
Shawn started her first nonprofit organization when she was just 12 years old – and it’s still running to this day. When she’s not engaging communities and fundraising to fight prostate cancer, you can find her cooking or making a beautiful mug on the pottery wheel.
