As a School Principal for 17 years Shauna has in-depth understanding of the deeply rewarding and increasingly challenging World of Education.
She has always been a passionate advocate and champion for the promotion of wellbeing in schools and was awarded two respective travel fellowships to study internationally (Canada, USA, Australia) to research good practice in terms of promoting wellbeing and building resilience in school communities.
