The Dr. Vibe Show

Shanita Hubbard is a student of motherhood, passionate social justice advocate, and writer.

This passion has been translated into action in the form of a diverse, justice centered career. From working as a therapist for youth on probation, operating job readiness programs for formally incarcerated adults, directing youth alternative-to-incarceration programs, grant writing, and now to a Criminal Justice Ethics Professor, Shanita continues to find creative ways to combat social injustice.
