In this episode, I speak with Shawn Tylka about Atlanta to get an insider view of the city. Shawn has lived in Atlanta since 1994 making her practically a native by Atlanta standards.  She lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with her rescued Alaskan Malamutes, Hercules and Beethoven, and is the proud mother of a grown daughter, Mackenzie.  

Shawn Tylka serves on the Americas Field Marketing Team for Ciena focusing on the MSO Practice and the Lumen team.  With more than 25 years in telecommunications, she has been honored as a Cable Pioneer by The Cable Center for her 20+ years of work with the cable industry.

An avid volunteer, Shawn is the logistics leader for Women Orthopaedist Global Organization, WOGO, an Operation Walk team which serves under-served communities around the world. WOGO undertakes yearly trips to developing countries where orthopedic reconstructive procedures are not readily available. Shawn manages all of the non-medical logistics for the team, moving 65 people around different developing nations.  She also spends time volunteering for Atlanta-based charities.

Shawn has a Bachelor of Science from Hood College in Frederick, Maryland.  She lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her rescued Alaskan Malamutes, Hercules and Beethoven and is the proud mother of a grown daughter, Mackenzie.
