Shanelle joined CIP in the Spring of 2016, and has held multiple positions- academic coach, student advisor, social mentor, job coach, and wellness instructor. She has also supported both, the Summer, and MPLOY programs. Shanelle enjoys the opportunity to support students in reaching their various goals, however, she has always called the Academic Department her home within CIP.
After graduating from California State University of Long Beach with a Bachelor’s in Biological Sciences, Shanelle looked to combine her passions of science, education, and human services. Prior to CIP, Shanelle gained experience through mentoring high school students, as well in her hospital volunteer work with patients recovering through physical and occupational therapy rehabilitation.
In her spare time, Shanelle enjoys hiking, paddle-boarding, traveling, eating, and training for Spartan Races! She also values spending quality time with her family, friends, and her Golden Retriever-Chow, Yogi.
