She has produced two academic papers, one on wetland management that was presented at the international Democratic Design Conference in Taiwan, and one on watershed management, which was presented at a River Restoration Symposium.
When she isn't writing about environmental issues, Shanna delights in exploring new cultures through travel. During the summer of 2014, she traveled to seven countries on three continents. She maintained a personal blog to keep family and friends abreast of her experiences, and photographed her journey for a travel fellowship. She blogged about the history of place, current culture, local religions and traditions, and her experiences in nature.
Besides her most recent trip to South America, Europe, and Asia, she has visited Australia once, Africa twice, and Central America three times. Her second trip to Africa (taken in January 2014) inspired her to write a moving novel about elephants.
