Shellie Carlson, a registered nurse at Lodi Memorial Hospital, has been working tirelessly on a quest to improve the lives of women and children in Ethiopia. When she is not working in the recovery unit helping critical care patients in the hospital, Carlson, 51, is planning a huge venture to build a facility in Ethiopia where single women — especially those suffering from AIDS — can learn the skills needed to earn their own money and care for their children.
