Shauna is passionate about helping people live and breathe adventure, traveling all over the world in pursuit of her goal. She has flown helicopters in South Korea, led experiential education programs in China, coached students to summit Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro, fed young adults a taste of la dolce vita on whirlwind trips of Europe encompassing fifteen countries, and guided trekkers on alpine adventures in Iceland and the Sierra Nevada Mountains. When wildfires forced her out of the wilderness, she discovered a love of long-distance cycling, embarking on self-supported solo tours across the United States and Mexico.

As a performing artist and immersive theater actor, Shauna conceptualizes and brings creative characters to life at festivals, special events, and on stages all over the country. Whether in the spotlight or out in the great outdoors, she thrives on making magic out of the mundane, opening people’s minds to new discoveries, and giving guests unforgettable experiences.
