Shenise Turner-Sloss is a long-standing native of Dayton who works as a Logistics Management Specialist with the federal government and has over ten years of local and federal government experience in community development, logistics, and project and program management.
A proud graduate of Dayton Public Schools, Shenise graduated from Fisk University with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science and a Masters of Science in Administration from Central Michigan University in General/Public Administration.
Shenise’s deep concern and passion for the stability of Dayton’s neighborhoods sparked the development of the non-profit organization “Neighborhoods Over Politics.” Serving as one of the co-founders for the organization, Shenise is a strong independent voice who is committed to neighborhood redevelopment and the economic sustainability of communities. In fact, she has procured and administered local projects totaling in excess of $7.6 million dollars.
Shenise understands how government works, and how it can work better to benefit people. She has provided technical assistance in administering the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) federal funding programs, the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), HOME Investment Partnership Program, and the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). She has received certification in Life-Cycle Logistics, and is a Housing Development Finance Professional (HDFP).
Shenise will combine her experience in the private, government, and not-for-profit sectors to see that our Dayton tax dollars are spent efficiently, and will help to create steady, good-paying jobs. She knows that a strong economic backbone will help to make Dayton a better place for families and businesses to thrive.
In addition to her work experience, Shenise is a graduate of Parity, Inc. Leadership Training and Dayton Urban League Young Professionals, and a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Matriots, Higher Heights, the American Federation Government Employees (AFGE-Union), and a board member for the African American Community Fund (AACF), Neighborhoods Over Politics, and Sunlight Village.
