Behind The Mission: Shayla Stewart

Observant, passionate, and kind. These are just a few words to describe Shayla Stewart. As a KFT, Program Coordinator, she works with our families to alleviate baseline concerns to improve their behavioral and emotional circumstances.

Her experience growing up as a Navy brat and living in Italy is what she believes led her to become a Clinical Licensed Social Worker. Living abroad, stimulated a purpose within her for wanting to know people’s stories. “People are not a monolith. They come from different areas and have different sets of values.” She has a natural appreciation for listening to diverse perspectives.

Seeing her clients get settled into their homes and achieve the goals that they set for themselves is what Shayla loves most about working at SHC.
