Volunteer Spotlight: Shawn
Hire Heroes USA volunteer Shawn has always had a passion for giving back to others. One of her favorite quotes is one from Dr. Martin Lurther King, Jr: “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” As soon as she learned about Hire Heroes USA, she was able to answer that question for herself.
Shawn spent over 30 years working in the human resources industry and knew her knowledge and skills would be of great help to our clients. “I knew I could offer coaching on how to transition valuable military experience and skills into the civilian workforce,” she said. Shawn has been a volunteer with Hire Heroes USA since 2014 and doesn’t plan to stop anytime soon.
Shawn’s dedication to helping veterans and military spouses is important to her. We asked Shawn why she enjoys volunteering with Hire Heroes USA; she said, “Giving back in some small way to the men and women and their families who have sacrificed so much is a privilege that allows me to express my sincere gratitude for their service.”
