I’m Shirley Guzman, a dedicated individual serving as the Program & Volunteer Manager for the Kailee Mills Foundation, a nonprofit committed to promoting seat belt safety. My journey began as an army brat, traveled through my life, graduated in Germany, and I call Brownsville, TX, my hometown.
My professional trajectory began at McDonald’s, where I started in the back drive-thru and climbed through the ranks to supervise several multi-million dollar restaurants. After 27 years with McDonald’s—15 in operations and 12 in HR—I transitioned to a remote HR role for another four years with a different company. A defining moment led me to reevaluate my path, and I decided to shift gears, yearning to be on the frontline, making a difference in people’s lives.
This realization led me to the Kailee Mills Foundation, where I’ve been passionately contributing to the mission of saving lives through seat belt safety. My journey has not been easy, but it has been one of continuous growth. I am proud to be part of an organization that prioritizes positively impacting the community, and I am proud of my commitment to grow but never change who I am. LIIVE- Leadership, Inclusion, Integrity, Vision, and Empathy.
Life is like a well-adjusted seat belt; how you fasten it can profoundly influence the trajectory of your journey. Throughout your life’s journey, diverse approaches will present themselves, and your choices will either have you love or dislike the reflection that meets your gaze in the mirror.
The road will be challenging, but you can do it. You don’t have to change who you are unless you don’t like what you see. Buckle up. Someone Loves you.
