David is a born-and-raised Idahoan, from Coeur d’Alene. He has spent the majority of his career in the administrative and customer service fields, gaining experiences in everything from food service to government. David has a passion for helping men and women regain their lives after being incarcerated because he knows firsthand how difficult that transition can be. He has spent 15 years incarcerated in Idaho’s prison system himself and has first-hand knowledge of the obstacles faced by those incarcerated who are trying to get their life back on track after being released. David feels strongly that systemic change is necessary. Reforms to the way our criminal justice system operates from the moment a person is arrested until they complete their sentence must be made in order to ensure our communities are safe, our incarcerated citizens are rehabilitated and to decrease the burden incarceration places on our society. He serves as the President of our Board of Directors as well as Executive Director.
Edy is a native Idahoan and critical care nurse with a passion to see the healing of others, not only physically but emotionally and spiritually as well. She not only works in a critical care setting but also teaches upcoming nurses and believes in the miraculous healing of God in people’s lives. Her spiritual beliefs in a nut-shell are that we are put on this earth to build a relationship with God and build relationship with others. Through BarNone she hopes to help build a bridge between the recently released and the society they live in while breaking down the walls that separate them. Edy serves as the Secretary of our Board of Directors as well as Operations Manager. She enjoys family time, interior decorating and running an occasional marathon.
Shannon is the assistant branch manager at a local credit union. She wants to find new ways to help people transition from incarceration to a fresh start in the community. Through BarNone, Shannon hopes to implement new financial literacy efforts for those who are incarcerated so they can hit the ground running when they are released. She serves as Treasurer of our Board of Directors as well as our Finance Director.
