Shaunda’s education and career have kept her in the health field, with interests ranging from infectious disease to social norms change around health behaviors. She currently works as the Tobacco Prevention Program Director for the San Mateo County Health System.
Shaunda was introduced to our organization after interviewing and hosting an older worker enrolled in our Second Careers Employment Program. In her current role with the San Mateo County Health System, she has learned to look upstream, beyond the treatment of illness and toward the policies and behaviors that cause less than ideal health. A member of our board since 2016, Shaunda hopes to work with Peninsula Family Service through our Child Development and Education Advocacy Committee to address one of the key social determinants of health: education.
