Brittany Shepard

District Coordinator-Dothan City Schools

Hailing from a tiny Southwest Georgia town, Brittany has called Dothan her home for the last decade.  After graduating from The University of Georgia, she spent two years in India working with nonprofit organizations. She was on staff at PR Employer and Eagle Eye Outfitters before joining the Bright Key team as Resource Coordinator for Highlands Elementary. While at Highlands, Brittany developed and implemented programs from the ground up. She truly enjoyed building relationships with students and their families while connecting the community to the school.


After seven years as Resource Coordinator, she felt like it was time for a change, in more ways than one. In the summer of 2021, Brittany underwent a life-saving kidney transplant thanks to the incredible generosity of a college friend. Once recovered, she jumped into her new role as District Coordinator for all the Bright Key programs in Dothan City Schools. As District Coordinator, she will continue fostering unity in diversity, working with others to reach a common goal and meeting needs when she sees them. There is no doubt Brittany believes the Bright Key model works! 


She is a follower of Jesus who loves her family, her dogs, the beach, travel, Georgia football, coffee and Mexican food. She enjoys cooking and entertaining in her home, going to concerts and hanging out with her nephew and niece. She is a fan of sports teams from the state of Georgia which is often a source of disappointment.

Jeanie Solomon

Community Liaison

We are thrilled to have Jeanie on our Bright Key staff. She taught in Dothan City Schools for 29 years as a teacher and instructional coach. During this time, she also taught as an adjunct instructor at Troy University in Dothan. Jeanie supports the notion that in addition to educators- parents, grandparents, and community members should have a voice in determining the educational paths offered to the children of our community. She also firmly believes that home, school, and community relationships drive student success.

Lindsey Wagner

Resource Coordinator-Heard Elementary

Lindsey is a busy mom with a rich resume for serving her community. After graduating from Auburn University Montgomery with a BSBA in Marketing, she worked in sales and marketing in the Wiregrass area for many years. Most recently she worked as the Community Advocate at the Southeast Alabama Child Advocacy Center.  She believes in the power of volunteerism and will continue serving them because advocating for child abuse victims is very important to her. She’s also a member of The Junior League of the Wiregrass, an organization that implements service projects all over the area. Lindsey finds the opportunity to serve as a Bright Key Resource Coordinator a blessing.  "It makes it possible for me to be able to continue serving children, but in a more direct way.” In Lindsey's spare time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, cooking, crafting, visiting the beach and Lake Martin and cheering on the Auburn Tigers!

Jessica Steltenpohl

Resource Coordinator-Highlands Elementary

Jessica is a proud native of the Circle City. After graduating from Dothan High School, she received her Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in marketing from University of South Alabama. She worked with the Wiregrass United Way for 10 years as an Area Manager and Director of Marketing. She loved working with the United Way and all the community members she helped impact, but after having her third child, she decided it was time for a change and started Jessica Steltenpohl Photography. For 6 years, she photographed families, newborns, products and real estate. 

She began volunteering with Bright Key in 2018 and fell head over heels for the program. She is excited to continue the great work Brittany Shepard started and build on it further with the help from the Highlands families, volunteers and stakeholders. One perk of the job is being in the school her kids attend. 

She is an active parishioner at St. Columba Catholic Church and serves on several committees. She and her high school sweetheart-turned-husband, Josh, love tailgating in Auburn most fall weekends. They also spend a lot of time watching their three kids play everything from soccer and golf, to flag football, basketball, baseball and gymnastics.

Rosalind James

Resource Coordinator-Morris Slingluff Elementary

Anyone who is fortunate enough to call Rosalind James a friend knows she’s passionate about serving the community needs and working with youth. That is evident by her extensive resume that spans decades. After graduating from Tuskegee Institute and receiving her Bachelor of Science Degree in Clothing/Design and Related Arts she also completed her Masters of Science degree in Home Economics Education. She then began her Extension career with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System of Auburn University by providing research based educational programs to low- income and underserved populations. 

She was employed as 4-H Youth Development Extension Agent for many years teaching leadership and life skills.  She later became an Urban Regional Extension Agent with major program areas in Community Resource Development, Health and Nutrition Diet and Health and Youth Career/ Leadership Development . Notably, she initiated and formed a partnership with BET Black Entertainment Television Network Foundation that gave the State of Alabama the opportunity to host a national BET Summer Camp for girls.

She has also planned and developed countless career summits and expos. She has received numerous awards for her work and served on several boards. She was appointed by Governor Kay Ivey to serve as a member of the WIOA Workforce Council for Region 6 and appointed to serve as Chair of WIOA Youth Committee as well. In addition, she’s done consulting work for Smart Work Ethics Soft Skills Training Program for middle/high school students.

She is thrilled to be at Morris Slingluff Elementary and strongly believes that we are returning back to the old African Proverb, “It takes a Village to Raise a Child.” 

She is fueled by community involvement but when it’s time to relax, you can find her watching Auburn and Alabama football with her husband, Farmer James, being active at church, vacationing and traveling abroad with family and friends.
