Shanna is a strong content writer with a background in environmental planning and natural resources management.
She has composed newsletter articles for environmental organizations, grant proposals, project reports, press releases, and white papers. She has also produced general web content for an energy agency and news blurbs for an endangered species organization.
She has a strong knowledge of wildlife conservation. She understands the principles of ecology, hydrology, and habitat restoration; and she is knowledgeable of natural resource law and policy.
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.
Shanna is now a professional freelance writer and is dedicated to providing high quality pieces to her clients with a quick turnaround.
