As a senior communications officer at Results for Development, Ms. Shaw directs the vision, strategy, and day-to-day management of marketing and communications for the Linked Immunization Action Network, a global health program that brings together government officials, practitioners, development partners, and other global experts from 19 countries to solve pertinent immunization program challenges. Within this role, Ms. Shaw strategizes and builds strategic partnerships with communications professionals at partner institutions, as well as designs and executes communications initiatives across email, social media, web, and other digital platforms with the goal of increasing the reach and uptake of network learnings.

Prior to that, Ms. Shaw served as a digital marketing specialist at Johns Hopkins HealthCare, where she managed cross-functional collaboration to develop and execute integrated marketing campaigns that improved health outcomes and converted new plan members across four health insurance products. In this role, Ms. Shaw led email marketing, social media marketing, member engagement, paid media, and SMS text messaging programs focused on improving chronic disease prevention and management and increasing coverage of routine vaccines.
