Siobhan Howard Davenport has broken every chain that a child born to unmarried, teen
parents is statistically bound. Raised by her paternal grandmother, who emphasized putting
God first in all things, Siobhan surpassed her parents education and became the first in her
family to graduate from college and continued on to earn a graduate degree.

As a philanthropist, Siobhan serves as the Executive Director of her family’s foundation, which primarily focuses on funding programs which
provide economic and educational opportunities to low income adults and youth
in the Washington Metropolitan region. Siobhan brings a commitment and dedication to underserved youth, helping them to believe in “Endless Possibilities: Creating an Ending Greater than Your Beginning.”

Siobhan was appointed in 2016 to the Maryland Governor’s Commission on Service and Volunteerism. She is dedicated to serving her community and has served on the Advisory Council for Ascend at the Aspen Institute, as Chair of the Lower School Committee at St. Andrew’s Episcopal School, Youth Programs Committee of the National Park Trust, trustee of the Washington Area Women’s Foundation, The Madeira School for Girls, Washington Tennis and Education Foundation, and the Black Student Fund.

A graduate of Boston University and American University, she and her husband, Corey, have been married for 16 years, have two beautiful children and are active members of Reid Temple AME Church North.
