Her work at CONNECT focuses on parent and provider outreach, educational programming, grant writing, donor engagement, and website curation. Prior to joining CONNECT, Shauna worked in the legal industry for 25 years, most recently as a competitive intelligence specialist for business development at Nossaman LLP in Los Angeles.

She graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Master’s Degree in Information and Library Science, and from the University of California at San Diego with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science.
