Debbie Allen
Executive Advisor to the Mayor/Executive Director @City of Saint Louis/Criminal Justice Coordinating Council
Debbie Allen started her career in Rockingham County, North Carolina, where she worked for District Attorney Belinda Foster, the first woman and first woman of color, to be elected as DA in the state. Debbie was an undergraduate student at Guilford College at the time. Since then, she's earned a few other degrees and lived professional experience. Her career has given her opportunities to work with a variety of public service individuals and government officials in multiple states as both administrator, and boots on the ground. In 2018, Mayor Lyda Krewson and Judge Michael Mullen brought Debbie to St. Louis through an executive fellowship program, FUSE Corps. Once here, Debbie was asked to help the city reimagine the local criminal justice system. For her, that meant establishing a Criminal Justice Coordinating Council and working to establish an information-sharing framework allowing the city access to data and the use of analytics to help understand the needs in the community.

Shawntelle L. Fisher is an influential leader, speaker, teacher, who serves with excellence and integrity. Shawntelle became a mother at age 15 and a convicted felon at age 17. After going to prison seven times, she made a decision to allow God to transform her into the person He had created her to be. This transformation led her back to college and to start The SoulFisher Ministries, a non-profit she now leads under the direction of her Board of Directors. She now holds four degrees and is a Licensed Master Social Worker. Since starting The SoulFisher Ministries in 2012 Shawntelle has raised over $3 million in funding to support their work in the St. Louis community. Her work in the community allows her to promote academic excellence and social responsibility in the lives of the youth they serve and to empower currently and formerly incarcerated women to take back control of their lives and become contributing taxpayers who give back to their communities in meaningful ways.
