About The Author
Best described as a “Citizen of the World” whether home or abroad, LaShaundra aims to positively impact the lives of those she encounters. After returning to the States after a short term assignment in South Africa through Global Ministries, she found herself fighting
for space in a crashing market. After fruitless job-hunting during the height of the recession, she stopped asking for a job and created her own opportunity by entering the world of speaking and training.
Since 2009, she has worked with hundreds of ministries, nonprofits, entrepreneurs and companies to navigate the social media landscape, craft their visions and build dynamic teams. Watching leaders learn how to cultivate healthy communication or witnessing the intersection between vision and lived reality are moments LaShaundra lives for.
For over two years, she used this combination of experiences as the Public Information Officer/Community Relations Manager for the City of Gulfport Mayor’s Office. As the city spokesperson and liaison, she worked to build transformative relationships with the community. Her educational background includes a Master of Divinity from Columbia International Seminary, Master of Arts in Digital Media
Production from Emerson College and Bachelor of Arts in Radio & Television Production from the University of Central Florida. She is also an authorized partner of 5 Behaviors of a Cohesive Team and Everything DiSC, and Constant Contact Certified Partner. LaShaundra currently lives in Biloxi, MS with her
husband John McCarty, III and children, Caleb and Kylar.
