Shenaaz Burrell

Executive Director

Shenaaz Burrell moved to Frankfort from Los Angeles, California, to attend Kentucky State University on a softball scholarship. She majored in social work and did a semester-long practicum at Simon House. After graduation, she was hired as a case manager at Simon House and was chosen to be the Executive Director in 2017. Her interests include cooking, fitness, and laughter. Shenaaz says she was drawn to working at Simon House because of her mother's experience as a homeless single mother from El Salvador. Through a homeless shelter in Los Angeles, her mother learned English, found a job, and moved to stable housing. Shenaaz says, "While at the Simon House I hope to shorten the bridge between homelessness and stable housing for my residents."
