Member Spotlight

ATD SC's April Member Spotlight is Shannata Ravenell

Shannata Ravenell is the mother of two and grandmother of two girls. She resides in Columbia, SC and currently is the Regional Training Coordinator in the Staff Training and Development Department at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control. She has been there almost two years and has grown tremendously as a trainer and facilitator.

One of her biggest accomplishments since she began her employment there has been the creation of the Power Skills of Leadership Series which is a 14 class training series. The series provides those in leadership as well as those looking to advance into leadership soft skills trainings ranging from emotional intelligence to critical thinking. She has also reincorporated the “Regional New Employee Orientation” for the Midlands region new employees within two months of onboarding.

She constantly works with the agency DEI department in helping to gauge the employees response to dealing with health inequalities within the state. After attending her first ATD State conference last year, her interest in Instructional Design and Learning has pushed her to enroll into Anderson University for the master’s degree program. Before beginning at DHEC, Shannata was a middle and high school science teacher in the public school system of South and North Carolina. Her aspirations are to own her own Staffing and Consulting Company focusing mostly on Leadership Skills as well as incorporating guidance to younger generations focusing on soft skills especially communication and critical thinking. She enjoys training and developing others in engaging classes and looks to grow and develop in talent development.
