Employee Spotlight: Shannon Wood, Human Resources Division

As an employee services manager with the Human Resources Division, Shannon Wood strives to help her TDCJ family every day – no matter the obstacles.

Helping people is something she says she loves to do, and during the last two years, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Shannon has gone the extra mile to ensure employees and their families are taken care of.

Even while she was quarantined, Shannon continued fulfilling her duties, making sure her department handled every challenge as smoothly as possible.

From overseeing the creation of several new COVID-related forms, tracking COVID leave, to aiding HR staff throughout the agency, Shannon and her team worked tirelessly to help TDCJ families.

Thank you, Shannon, for your dedication and service!
