Shanda Taylor Boyd
Advocating for disabled veterans
Shanda Taylor Boyd entered the United States Army after college, then returned to school to complete her nursing degree at the UW. She returned to the military as an Army nurse. In 2004, she suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of an automobile accident and learned that she could no longer work as a nurse. She has since dedicated herself to advocating for disabled veterans and military families through the R4 Alliance and other organizations.
