Shonda Marve

LaShonda Marve-Austin was born in Flint, Michigan and moved to Las Vegas in 2015. She is a mother of three and is the oldest of ten siblings.


Shonda’s journey into the political sphere began when she joined the Make it Work Nevada team to help organize and mobilize folks during the 2018 midterm elections.


"My main passion lies in helping to change the lives of folks who have a hard time changing things for themselves. I work is informed by my life as I am no stranger to the struggle and making things work with whatever I can."


Her experience is what makes it befitting to be apart of Make it Work Nevada. Her hobbies include scrapbooking, reading, and vintage resale shopping. Shonda also holds an associate's degree in Interdisciplinary Studies. Follow Shonda on Twitter:
