Ms. Ballard’s employment experience consists of working in non-profit at the NAACP Houston Branch serving in the community youth outreach arena in lower income areas where students were deemed “at risk.” The program was tailored for prevention and education around HIV/AIDS and Substance Use and Abuse. She later continued to work in the non- profit field concerning HIV/AIDS under an infrastructure grant at the YWCA- Houston.
Sh’Nay has always shown interest in making a larger impact so decided to venture out. She served eight years in the Pasadena Independent School District with Communities In Schools, Inc., with what started as a pregnant and parenting school within the district.
Alongside building her own business, Ms. Ballard is currently serving in her 10th year with YES Prep Public Schools as a high school Student Support Counselor at one of the north campuses.
