A Passion Leads to Changing Lives

12 Aug A Passion Leads to Changing Lives

Data2insight would like to shine a light on Denise Shelton, a woman small business owner who inspires us.

A passion to change lives and make an impact on at-risk communities drove Denise Shelton’s transition from Department of Corrections warden to CEO. (source)

Shelton retired from the Washington, D.C., Department of Corrections in 2002 and formed Community Bridge, Inc (CBI). Her company was built “with the goal of empowering and rehabilitating local residents by providing viable, progressive employment and trade skills development.” Community Bridge is now a full-service facility management company that employs 200 people and services six wards in the District of Columbia.  (source)

Thanks, Denise, for showing us how passion can turn into something that changes our world.
