“Denver has been a great place to raise my family, strengthen my career and develop friendships and partnerships,” Shawn said. “I understand the charitable needs in Denver better as I get more involved in my city, and it feels good to be able to support the place that has given me so much.”
Supporting children and helping them develop, thrive and reach their potential is an impactful investment in our city, state and society, No matter where they’ve come from, I’m fortunate to be able to play a part in their future. - Shawn Reed
Together Shawn and Kyle, a reservoir engineer at QEP Resources, support Freedom Service Dogs, one of the nation’s leading service dog training organizations. The non-profit rescues dogs from animal shelters and trains them to be assistance animals to both civilians and veterans.
Kyle, like his father, is also passionate about improving the lives of children. He and his wife are working to expand their family through the foster system, offering support, encouragement and love to another child.
“From the people, vibrancy and impactful nonprofits, the Denver community greatly enriches our lives, and we can’t wait to share what we’ve built together with a new member of our family,” Kyle said. “We want to contribute to the richness of this city and help others, especially children, experience all the very best things Colorado has to offer.”
Shawn and Kyle learned the concepts and rewards of hard work early on in their family, the classrooms of the Mewbourne College of Earth and Energy and the Colorado oilfields, and they strive to commit those values to their industry as well as their community every day.
Whether creating and discovering energy through engineering or committing their own energy through service and volunteerism, generations of the Reed family are dedicated to their Denver neighbors, and they look forward to continuing to make a lasting and continuing impact.
