Cassandra Littlejohn is a transformational leader who has displayed that quality continuously through her entrepreneurial and public service efforts. An ordained minister and Episcopal Legate, she has an innate nature to serve others and hopes to bring this spirit of servant leadership to the Johns Creek City Council.
Cassandra earned a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from Beulah Heights University in Atlanta, GA. As a lifelong learner, she later became a certified life coach and graduate of Fowler Wainwright International and earned a Chaplaincy certificate of completion.
As a passionate servant leader, she founded Tag Team Parents and Sound Mind Concepts, organizations dedicated to guiding young people toward achieving their maximum potential. Additionally, as Senior Vice President of Confidential Search Solutions, she helped to lead the human resources company in providing employment consulting and executive recruitment for its clients.
Dedicated to serving the community, she made history as the first African American to serve the diverse population of District 9 in an at-large seat on the DeKalb County Board of Education. In this role, she served 100,000 students, 14,000 Employees, and 144 Schools and Centers and ushered in innovative ways of conducting business with accountability which ultimately led to her being elected as Chair of the Board for two terms. Due to her strong legacy, she was later appointed by DeKalb County's CEO to the Transition Committee to assist in developing a more efficient government.
In 2009, Cassandra relocated to San Antonio, TX, where she continued her public service as the Program Director for SA Youth, a drop-out prevention nonprofit organization. As a result of her record of keen management skills and abilities to partner with prominent community leaders, Former Mayor Ivy Taylor of San Antonio appointed Cassandra to the Mayor Council on Police-Community Relations. Continuing her work as a trusted leader, she served as Sheriff Javier Salazar’s appointee to the Sheriff and Citizens Organized for Public Engagement (SCOPE) team and a companion Sheriff’s Sworn Advisory Group to discuss topics of concern voiced by the SCOPE team.
With heartfelt dedication to public service, her greatest fulfillment came with the decision to be a stay-at-mom for twelve years. It afforded her the opportunity to invest countless hours in volunteerism, which allowed her to not only have an impact in the lives of her children, but also the community at large.
Cassandra is proud to have returned to the Atlanta area in Johns Creek and has the loving support of a wonderful husband (Kevin), beautiful adult children (Ashley and Scottie), and two amazing grandchildren (Amir and Le’di).
