Coordinator of Student Services in Student Life
As the Coordinator of the Student Life Office, Mabia Shadel loves being able to interact with students and parents and share her different perspective of the world and love for Christ. Her hope is that by providing excellent service and communication between Trinity’s departments and students, the students will have a smoother time navigating the Trinity experience.
Originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Mabia is fluent in Portuguese and loves traveling. She decided to come to study Public Relations and Advertising at Lee University in the United States to expand her world view. While in college she won awards as the Outstanding International Student and the ADDY award. She also completed a summer semester in the heart of Scotland in Edinburg. During her journey, she married Andrew and now lives in the Chicago area with her husband and son Lucas.
“Trinity feels like Narnia, a secret and exciting place in the midst of a big city ready to be explored,” she says.
