Born to Fred and Gloria Shuttlesworth, Dr. AMS had no choice but to discover a love of family. With southern roots grounded in Gates Tennessee and Birmingham Alabama her family was a witness to turmoil and also a major part of its progress. Due to her knowledge of self that extends far beyond her as an individual she adopts the African proverb ‘Ubuntu,’ I Am Because WE Are, as a way of life by choosing to create and utilize a “Village” philosophy.
