Ep. 16 – Shanea Nelson, Director of Community Development, LCG


Have you ever wanted to serve your community by working in local government?

This week’s guest never did. In fact, she wanted to steer clear of being involved in any form of politics.

But this week, Dr. Shanea Nelson talks about how her career path challenged her to impact others through the role of Director of Community Development for Lafayette Consolidated Government.

Dr. Nelson also does a GREAT job of really breaking down what this complex department does to help us understand the full scope of what she and her staff do to build up our community.

Dr. Nelson talks about her involvement with the Christiana Smith Alumni Chapter at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority.

She also mentions her work with the McComb-Veazey Neighborhood Coterie and past Conversations with Leaders guest, Tina Bingham. You can listen to Tina’s episode here.
