Shanice was born in Louisiana and raised in Yakima. She recently moved to the Seattle area 1.5 years ago with her children. Shanice has always had a passion for working with kids. Her first job was working in a daycare center as an assistant in which she later transitioned into a lead teacher. Since then she has worked to progress her experience in the educational field and started working as a teacher’s assistant at a Montessori school. After 3 years she then accepted a new position working at a behavioral facility for the youth, which she loved. She shared, that even though it had its challenges this was by far the most rewarding job she’s had especially when it came to making a good impact on the kids.
