The Grand Marshal

Presiding over the 2016 Colorado Springs St. Patrick's Day Parade will be

Catherine & Dr. Sean O'Donnell

Born and raised in Colorado Springs, Sean O’Donnell attended Corpus Christi Elementary School, North Middle School, and Palmer High School. He received his BA from Colorado College. He then went on to complete his graduate studies in public health at University Texas-Houston and medical school at the University of Colorado. Dr. O’Donnell then served in the US public health service in the Micronesian Islands returning to Colorado Springs to set up a private family practice in 1987.  In addition to providing full spectrum family practice, Dr. O'Donnell has certifications in sports medicine and tropical and travel medicine. Dr. O’Donnell served as a team physician for Colorado College and Palmer High School and has been actively involved with the Olympic athletes here at the Olympic training center. He has served on the board of Cheyenne Village and was an associate director at Pikes Peak Hospice.

With Cathryn, his beautiful wife of 35 years, he raised three sons and assisted in the lives of several foster children. In his spare time, he enjoys outdoor activities and is an active climbing member of the AdAmAn Club.  Dr. O'Donnell is proud to be involved in this fun event--a parade where everyone can be a little Irish!
