Shinichi was born in Memphis, Tennessee and moved to Milwaukee with her family when she was only 2 years old. She understandably calls Milwaukee home. She graduated from South Division High School and headed south to attend Grambling State University in Louisiana.
After a year there she took a leave of absence to start a family. She raised a daughter and a son and is now the proud grandmother of two, one from each of her children. After struggling with addiction Shinichi voluntarily admitted herself to a detox program and her next step was 2nd Century to continue her recovery. After successful completion of their 90 day program she found a home with the Franciscan Peacemakers, a program that has gotten her back on track to be present in the lives of her family.
Shinichi graduated from Clare Community in February 2022 after two years of hard work and a highly focused commitment to following a path to full sobriety and independent living.
She now works as the Production Manager for Franciscan Peacemakers, a promotion she richly deserved after two years of exhibiting her admirable work ethic. Shinichi’s work ethic can be attributed to her dad and her kindness and caring to her mom. Shinichi is a genuine people person and a natural salesperson who is extremely proud of the products she makes to support the work done by Franciscan Peacemakers.
