Shwanda Barnette graduated from Towson University in 2004, with a B.S. Degree in Sociology & Anthropology, accompanied by a minor in Business. Through studying and exploring social ills and injustices that plague urban communities, Shwanda was motivated to pursue a legal education. She went on to receive her J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center with a concentration in Education Law & Policy. After graduating from Georgetown Law in 2007, she completed a Judicial Clerkship with the Maryland Circuit Court and transitioned into a legal career in Family Law. At the heart of this work was her passion for children and families, which led her to a career with DC Public Schools. For 5 years, she worked in Program Management, Planning and Staffing for DC Public Schools, and ended her career there, managing the DCPS Urban Education Leaders Internship Program. Shwanda recently relocated to Orlando, Florida and will be working for the Florida League of Cities. She is passionate about creating her own narrative as far as her career is concerned and is a proud multipotentialite! You can reach her at www.multipotentialitesunite.blogspot.com
