Shauna earned degrees in liberal studies and multicultural education. She has also taught at the elementary and adult school level, as well as taught English as a Second Language. Teaching increased her interest in the home life and struggles of her students and she wanted to help them improve their lives outside of the classroom. Shauna graduated from the University of Phoenix in 2018 with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She has completed basic training in EMDR therapy as well as attended a workshop in the use of EMDR for addictions. She has been a board member of the Southern Utah Autism Support Group and has found joy in helping parents and caregivers connect with the resources they need to help support a family member with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Shauna has enjoyed helping those affected by trauma find hope and healing. Shauna and her husband of over 20 years have 2 sons, and as a family, they enjoy the outdoors, and any opportunity for family time.
