She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Political Science from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (2020). In her free time, Shanelle enjoys baking, couponing, and spending time with her sister and dog. She adds, “I have been a girl scout leader for about 6 years now! I currently serve with my sister’s troop!” Tate works for Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy because: “Entering the legal field has been the goal that has kept me going. Growing up I benefited from legal advocacy programs that helped my mother and I get out of horrible situations, and I wanted to return the service to a similar organization.”
