Latrice Shannon

Latrice Shannon received her B.A. in Psychology with a minor in Spanish from University of Louisville.  She went on to complete her MSSW with a specialization in Marriage & Family Therapy. She later worked as a research assistant on a grant that compared the effectiveness of relationship education versus  sex education in reducing the risk of pregnancy and the spread of STIs in at-risk teenagers. She has spent the last 15 years in healthcare—first as an intake coordinator in the inpatient psychiatric setting and most recently as a hospital case manager on an inpatient medical/oncology unit. Her research interests include: implicit bias, relationship education (particularly with Black parents and families), the case for reparations, and bioethics.  Latrice’s faculty mentor is Dr. Victor Figuereo.
