Shauna is thrilled to be joining her third Semester at Sea voyage, having sailed as a student in Spring 2010 and staff in Spring 2014. Shauna’s marketing career began at a young age when she started a national non-profit organization, A Million Thanks, benefiting military and their families. She traveled the country speaking to companies and youth on the importance of giving back, was recognized by the White House and Pentagon, and was interviewed by hundreds of media outlets across the country.
Her experience led her to pursue a degree in PR and Advertising from Chapman University, where she continued to run her organization. Upon graduating, Shauna worked at a marketing agency before moving into restaurant marketing. She is now the Director of Marketing for a smoothie and raw juice bar franchise.
Shauna and her husband, Matt, who will be sailing in the Assistant Executive Dean role, met on SAS as students and are excited to continue their around-the-world adventures together. They live in Newport Beach, California, with Trekker, their golden retriever rescue from Nepal.
