About Davida

When Davida entered school there were no laws guaranteeing people with disabilities the right to an education, therefore, her teachers did not understand that CP affects how the brain processes information or that she learns differently.  She also grew up in a dysfunctional family where there was a lot of physical, emotional, and verbal abuse, so as a child she had low self esteem.  It was only after entering college and studying both mental health and psychology did she learn to turn her mindset from a negative on to a more positive one.

It was while she was in graduate school the Individual Disability Education Act became law.  For the first time in 1977 people with disabilities were guaranteed the right to an education up to age 21.


Davida Shensky has owned her own business for the last 25+ years since she entered the workforce 12 years before the Americans with Disabilities Act became law.  it is not the limit she places on herself but the limits that society places on her due to their misunderstanding of the disability community at large. She has had to learn to become her own advocate and to think outside of the box when it comes to employment.

Davida started Career Performance Institute and works with clients to help you reach your maximum potential and overcome your personal obstacles (fears) to unlock your potential at the highest level to reach your personal goals and fulfill your destiny..  We work with you to come up with a strategy to get from where you are now to where you want to be in the future.  Career opportunities have moved from working for a large firm in a physical place to working from home virtually online.  To lower the cost of overhead companies sell their products virtually, online, through websites, and word-of-mouth advertising through affiliates or distributors.  We work with you to find the right opportunity in your niche and help you come up with a strategy to build a successful team and skills needed to become a good communicator, team builder, and leader.
