Last year we were pleased when Shawn Rodda lent her expertise and considerable organizational skills to our first Art for Ethiopia event in Denver. We were even more pleased when Shawn accepted our invitation to join Ethiopian Orphan Relief Inc.’s board. In the coming weeks, she’ll be adding her own stories to EOR‘s blog, but I wanted you to meet her first.
Shawn is a construction and real estate attorney based in Boulder, CO. She received her undergraduate degree from Penn State University and her J.D. from Tulane University School of Law. She and her husband, Justin, brought home their daughter,Lidya, from Ethiopia in May of 2008. In addition to Lidya, Shawn and Justin are parents to Nittany, a ten year old Golden Retriever. Shawn in an active member of the Colorado Ethiopia Adopt group, and enjoys hiking, camping, skiing, playing with Lidya, and all things Ethiopia. She continues to serve on our Art for Ethiopia committee, and along with Katie Bell, Shawn is a member of our grant team.
Thank you, thank you for joining us Shawn. Your plate was so full before you joined EOR, but you’ve managed to squeeze us in too. Go wonder Woman, GO!
