Shenell Tolson, DrPH
Welcome Friend, my name is Shenell.
You may recognize me as one-fifth of the STEM-tastic STEMbassy crew; an online science show where STEM ambassadors meet to discuss their work and current happenings in the wonderful world of science. I am also the science-policy advisor for The B-SCI, a member of the planning council for the STEMNoire conference, and a member of the board of directors for The Meningioma Brain Tumor Network.
I currently work as a biologist in human health and toxicology where I assess the risk associated with various compounds introduced to the human body and the environment. I use social media as a form of science communication to educate and inform the community about basic STEM and public health concepts. I am super passionate about #MelanatedMunchkins in the STEM pipeline and highlighting and affirming #BlackGirlsInSTEM.
I'm also the CEO of Kindred Consulting, a small, Black woman-owned global brand that aims to meet STEM and public health education needs in media, the classroom, and communities worldwide. Kindred Consulting is also available to help non-profit, healthcare, government, and human service organizations train and execute STEM and public health objectives.
