About All Around Athlete


My Story.
 My Mission.

“Water is life. When you get in the water it becomes your friend and continues to give.”

My name is Shana Howard, and I am a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I am currently living in Huntsville, Alabama. I am a school teacher at an elementary school and an adjunct professor at Alabama A&M University. I am a single mother raising two kids, and a survivor of a traumatic brain injury (TBI). I find great victory in rephrasing my TBI into a TESTIMONY BEYOND IMAGINATION. Recently, I wrote a book named, “BRAIN-E-YAK Wonders” and it explains how I overcame a TBI.

I received my Associates of Arts degree in 2001 from Lawson State Community
college, and Bachelor of Science degree in Physical Education from Alabama A&M University in 2005. I obtained my first master’s degree in 2010 from Alabama A&M University in Physical Education and my second Master’s Degree in 2018 from Alabama A&M university in Leadership.

All-Around Athlete, was founded in 2019  and more recently I have established a non-profit organization called Swim with Spice.


Swimming teaches endurance and tenacity.


Swimming builds confidence and helps everyone to have a sense of accomplishment.


We create miracles in three days. From fear to fearLESS we help people swim to their fullest potential.

i am a miracle
