Throughout my tenure at Georgia State, I developed a familiarity with all kinds of music, including classical, alternative rock, rhythm & blues, and hip-hop. I excelled in several internships, with concentrations in marketing/management, at LoudNKlear Entertainment/Icon Studios under the direction and tutelage of Ian Burke and Stone and Tashia Stafford; Twelve Studios with Dina Marto, Chubbie Baby and the AwesomLife team while serving artists such as Rick Ross and T.I.; and Biv Global Management with Rocky Bivens and LaTocha Scott of Grammy award-winning R&B group Xscape.
Currently, I freelance and help curate and manage digital media content, for both local and national independent artists’ social media accounts, including Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat, and LinkedIn. I also assist in organizing and executing promotional materials and projects for events.
Amongst these services, artist and label consulting & management is my specialty. At this time, I have creatives such as Olympia Papageorgiou/Qurriculum Global, Six Figure Serge, Queenie Lasoul, and others on my roster. In spring of 2020, I was accepted into a marketing program at my alma mater, Georgia State University, where I am currently completing a master's degree, to be conferred in August 2021.
Although others believe their success should never be defined by the success of those around them, I truly believe teamwork makes the dream work. If my vision matches with the artist’s dream and I do my job to its fullest extent, everybody wins and the dream becomes a reality. I realize that hard work and dedication is the only thing that will get me to the top, so let me help you do the same. ~ AS GOOD AS GOLD ~
“Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care” — Theodore Roosevelt
I love taking care of people whether it’s an actual illness or the soul and mind that’s sick, I love to make people feel good or better. That’s probably why I chose a career in the healthcare field as a Dental Assistant.
A lot of people downplay the dentist but funny thing is most people are terrified of them. Believe it or not we are a-lot like therapist, talking patients through their fears or problems when they sit in that dental chair. My job as an assistant is to assist the doctor during surgical procedures, but the most pride I get from my job is taking care of my patients. I love Oral surgery because it gives me the thrill of the surgical world, and a lot of the procedures I do is to help give the patients a better way of life.
But there is a creative side to me....
I love Interior Decorating or what I call “Interior Styling”. I love a beautiful home. Whether simple and modern, warm and rustic, or the ultimate glam, interior styling gives me much joy.
In 2018 Shamika and her started their interior decorating company Decor Styles By JS. Her specialty as co-founder is home staging and painting. I love creating accent wall designs for clients or coming into a home and brining a vision to life. In 2021 Decor Styles By JS will be celebrating 3 years with a release of the brand Home by JS which will feature a line of bedding and linens. “I love being a dental assistant but I want to create something for my son, something that could be passed down for generations. Even if this something my son doesn’t want to do for the rest of his life, it will give him options and the experience of running a business. I want him to have the knowledge I didn’t have growing up.”
—Shamika Super is 35 currently living in her hometown Teaneck, NJ with her 9 year old son Amare. She enjoys traveling with her son, spending time with family and friends, and listening to music.
