Hi, everyone! I’m Shanna and fall of 2014 will begin my second year in Villanova’s Master of Public Administration program. I came to Villanova after some time working in the nonprofit sector, having completed my B.A. in Politics at Messiah College. I am thrilled to have had the chance to become very involved on campus during my first year here, serving as a Graduate Student Ambassador, as well as a research assistant for my program. I manage our program’s blog, which you can find at mpaleaderslounge.wordpress.com. Professionally, I am interested in local government, and am an active member of Villanova’s chapter of ICMA (International City/County Management Association). In my spare time, I like to sing, play trivia, and write about my favorite shows on my TV blog, rabbitearreviews.blogspot.com. The GSC is looking forward to serving a fantastic community of grad students here at Villanova this year!
