Kimberly Shead, Development Manager 

I am a native to St. Louis but have had the wonderful pleasure of residing in great cities such as Dallas, Charlotte, Nashville and Los Angeles, where I gained invaluable experience in the nonprofit, television and marketing industries. My midwestern sensibilities and love for family compelled my move back to the Gateway City. I was blessed to be raised in a very loving and supportive home by my aunts who instilled a strong work ethic and spirit of volunteerism in me. I saw how they worked tirelessly in the field of education to better the lives of children and youth, as well as gave any extra time to volunteering and serving our community. I believe these values are what influenced my decision to seek out an organization such as The Soulard School. It fills my heart with joy to know that I am doing work that will truly make a difference in the lives of children and our community.
