Shae is the President and CEO of Southern Oregon Goodwill, a role she has held since November 2014. Shae was born in West Virginia but considers herself a native Oregonian, having attended school in the Rogue Valley from elementary through high school. She earned a bachelor’s degree from Eastern Washington University and later received a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Denver. Shae and her husband Chris made the Rogue Valley home in 2009, where they are raising their two children, a girl and a boy. Shae returned to Goodwill in 2011 as the Director of Mission Services and was elevated to President/CEO three years later. She is passionate about creating an inclusive community that values opportunities for all its citizens.
A Certified Executive with Goodwill Industries International, Shae joined the Goodwill Executive Council in 2017 and serves as the Vice-Chair of the council and Chair of the Strategic Directions Taskforce. She is also a member of the board for Goodwill Industries International.
Shae has a lifetime love of equestrian sports and spends as much free time as possible with her family at their rural ranch with horses, chickens, dogs, cats, and a growing vegetable garden.
