Shaw OpCo Company, 501(c)(3), the non-profit arm of Shaw Operating Company LLC, appreciates the service of its board members.
President - Dr. Judi Shaw.
Dr. Judi Shaw MD, FACP, MMM, CPE, CHCQM is a board-certified internal medicine physician with over 20 years of clinical office experience and over 10 years of Executive medical management experience in utilization management, process improvement and quality control.
Dr. Shaw received her medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and completed her Internal Medicine Residency at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. She became a Certified Physician Executive through The American Association for Physician Leadership, then later completed her Masters in Medical Management at Carnegie Melon - Heinz College of Information Systems & Public Policy. Dr Shaw is fluent in English and Spanish.
Dr. Shaw believes that "to whom much is given, much is expected". After years of delivering care in the traditional bureaucratic atmosphere, the calling to step outside her comfort zone and extend a helping hand was too loud to ignore. She has always believed that health starts locally and wellness is personal. The drive to improve the health and wellbeing of those disenfranchised and less fortunate became a purpose and driving force for change. This vision was the foundation of the Shaw OpCo Corporation.
Dr. Shaw has served on the boards of The Houston Museum of Natural Science, Harris County Medical Society, Physicians Organization of Women and of a prior organization she founded Together Erasing Autism /Tre' Rice Endowment Foundation.
Secretary: Attn. Xiaoman Pang.
Xiaoman was born in China, and grew up in France. She graduated from the University of Paris I Pantheon Sorbonne, in international commercial law and in private law.
Xiaoman has been practicing as an attorney for over 25 years. She is a partner in a French law firm where she specialises in private equity transactions (mergers and acquisitions, LBO, venture capital, financing of acquisition) and advises investment funds and international corporations as well as individuals, in particular Chinese clients, in their investments in France, including business setup, equity and assets acquisitions and real estate projects.
Being fluent in English, French and Chinese, and possessing a multi-cultural profile, I bring to my clients both cultural and legal expertise. I strive to place the human being at the centre of each transaction, taking into account their aspirations and constraints, in order to provide practical and sustainable solutions.
I have had the chance to live in, and travel between, China, France and the US, three countries with very different health systems and approaches to healthcare. Two commonalities though: well-being is a common aspiration, and less fortunate populations suffer more from health issues.
I strongly believe in the importance of preventive healthcare programs and health literacy to improve the conditions of the poorer.
I am honoured to be part of the board of Shaw OpCo Corporation, and to contribute to the success of its mission programs and medical community building collaborative efforts.

I am also very active in my church. I have volunteered with CXC - helped to implement the Information Technology examinations across the region. I have volunteered at both UWI and UTech in teaching courses in their Computer Science programs.
I have always had a passion for giving back to my community. I also have a passion for my island home and have always participated in activities and efforts that are focused on developing youth and giving back to my community. An educated and a healthy population are necessary for the development of a country and my focus and passion is on nation building. I currently facilitate same through my church and a number of key charities.
Technical consultant (Master Technologist) employed at Hewlett Packard Enterprise for over 25 years. Have been working in the IT industry (Digital Equipment Corp., Compaq Computers and HP) for over 30 years on hardware development of various products including hand-held, notebook devices to high performance super computers and managing various aspects of supply chain operations.
A graduate from Polytechnic Institute of New York (NYU Engineering) with a degree in Chemical Engineering, followed by advanced course work in materials science and general business management.
Over the years I have been involved with multiple projects that were focused on helping those in need or less fortunate; assisted learning for inner city kids, feeding the hungry and few other related efforts. The opportunity and interest for joining this board provides for a more active role in assisting and participating on an effort that's focused on improving the health and well-being of people and communities in need. I look forward to lending my pragmatic approach on challenges, to assist in formulating plans that can provide help to others.
I am presently employed by the Surrey School District, in BC, Canada and have been with them for the past 11 years. I have worked in an inner city school for the past ten years, helping children who have mental health, cognitive and behaviour challenges.
I am just finishing up my Masters in Art Therapy, with a focus in working with children and young Adults suffering from trauma and addiction.
I have served on many boards over the years, ranging from athletic associations and art societies to recovery homes. My most recent position was being an executive board member of The Launching Pad Addiction Rehabilitation Society. It is my personal belief that in order to help children overcome the many (adverse childhood experiences) ACEs that they may have experienced we must provide them with the tools necessary to work through their traumas, and help them by offering various forms of therapy, specific education catering to their needs and play. I believe that both my experiences and personal beliefs would bring additional benefits to what is already a great program.
Although I am from a small town in Kansas, I have been fortunate enough to experience global travel from the time I was 13. Even before I stepped foot abroad, I met many missionaries who visited my church and shared about their countries and experiences. I might have acted like a typical distracted kid during the sermons but once the missionaries would come out to tell us what was going on outside of Minneapolis, Kansas I would always lean in to soak up as much as I could.
The first country I visited was India. This trip was especially meaningful to me because we went to stay with a local missionary family my parents were friends with. I think back now and am amazed I do not remember feeling uncomfortable or running out of things to talk about with the Indians. I fell in love with the people and the country which inspired many more international trips after that.
As fate would have it, I am now in the process of moving with my husband to Bengaluru, India this month. I have been working in the Oil & Gas industry for the past seven years with a startup company that I helped grow through many curves and learning experiences. I recently made the decision to leave that world and look to new horizons. I started a business during 2020 which is focused on spiritual growth and self empowerment. I am not sure where this will take me, but I know India is the right place for me to be.
I recently met with Dr. Judi Shaw this year, and we shared experiences of mission trips and learning more about wellness. I believe there are many tools through meditation, herbs, and mental health that can assist in the prevention of illness. This of course should be combined with many practices in traditional medicine.
My desire in joining the board is to work with people from around the world and collaborate to try and improve lives and build up those who have struggled.I believe I can be helpful to Shaw Medical combining my experiences both in business and spiritual practices. I possess an inherent desire to see the world a better place, and my heart is open to where I can serve best in that effort.
