I believe that everything happens in divine order.
I show Catalysts for Change how to heal themselves so they can serve others. I guide leading non-profit, philanthropic and human service organizations in nourishing a culture of racial equity, healing and impact. I hold space for Black women and girls to heal present day and historical trauma, honoring culture and teaching mind-body medicine. I would love to connect with organizations ready to tackle tough topics about race, on a journey to be anti-oppressive and liberation-focused.

"Shawna's ability to infuse these healing elements into the already established community culture innovates the scope of social work practice, and opens methods of overcoming trauma to individuals and families who may otherwise lack access."
