Carla Sheppard is a compassionate servant leader, wife and mother to three active children. She is also a native of Saint Louis. At age nine she and her family relocated to Anaheim California. While living in California Mrs. Sheppard worked under her parent's guidance and learned to be a grateful servant to people in need.
Mrs. Sheppard's family donated gently used furniture and clothing to shelters every season, fed the homeless and housed homeless families for many years. After earning a full athletic scholarship for Track & Field, Mrs. Sheppard attended Cal State Fullerton and completed her Bachelor degree in Human Services, Mental Health and Counseling with a minor in Afro Studies spring of 2000. Mrs. Sheppard also had a passion for teaching so while working as a Paraprofessional Social Worker she pursued and completed her first Master's degree in Elementary Education from St. Xavier University in Chicago 2005. While teaching in Chicago Mrs. Sheppard's younger sister was called to duty in Iraq and required assistance with her newborn son. Mrs. Sheppard immediately answered the call and relocated to St. Louis Spring 2007.
Once she arrived a longing to serve on the front line surfaced so she pursued and completed her Masters in Social Work at Washington University St. Louis. Mrs. Sheppard is now the building Social Worker here at Russell as well as the Foster Care and Adoption Liaison for the Hazelwood School District.
