Expert Facilitation Skills and Lived Experience

Shenandoah Chefalo is an expert storyteller, teacher, and coach. She captivates and engages her audiences, who find themselves laughing, crying, reflecting, and envisioning a brighter future all within the same hour.

Shen's lived experiences of childhood abuse and neglect, including her time in the broken foster care and juvenile justice systems, give her a perspective that most speakers lack. Her insight into the systems we play a part in is invaluable, and her many years of experience sharing these insights have made her an exquisite speaker.

Shen is available for webinars, keynotes, and other online and in-person speaking events, including workshops, podcasts, and media interviews.
