Shawanda R. Randolph served in the United States Air Force for over 20 years. She has been sought out as a leader, manager and mentor whose opinion and judgment is highly regarded and trusted. Since retirement, Shawanda continues to lead a life dedicated to serving and helping others. Shawanda published an inspirational book, "Fresh Manna: Journey To A New Beginning" where she offers wisdom to those who find themselves stuck at life’s crossroads, seeking answers to How did I get here? and How do I move forward? She is most recently featured in the Amazon Best-seller, 20 Beautiful Women, Volume 6, where she shares her story of overcoming and defying the odds of victimization with the principle that "a woman should never be defined by what she has been through. Instead, the challenges we overcome, make us stronger and our stories are meant to encourage and empower others, giving them fuel for the future." Shawanda received her MBA with an emphasis in Healthcare Administration from Wilmington University and MA in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary. She also holds A.A.S. degrees in Healthcare Administration and Human Resources. Shawanda has started a nonprofit, DeeCilla Comfort Center, with plans to open a center for those victimized by human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assault.
