Shalanté graduated from VCU in 2015 with a B.S. in Psychology and Sociology. Since then, she has worked across multiple settings in the human services, behavioral, and mental health fields. Shalanté has worked with Clark-Hill Institute since 2015 on various projects as an Assessment Staff, and most recently, as an Assessment Assistant on the HCFY Projects.
Shalanté‘s research interests include learning how exposure to violence and other traumas impact youth & their functioning, and ways to mitigate this to improve the overall quality of life for youth and families in Richmond and communities like it.
Within the next year, Shalanté hopes to enter an MSW, MPH, or Sociology graduate program to further her education and overall impact in the community.
