Director of International Programs
Shona originally hails from a small town on the border
of Ontario/Quebec, Canada. A traveller since a young age, after graduating in
2000 from Algonquin College in Ottawa Canada, she traveled for several years
before settling in Sydney, Australia. In the past 18 years she has spent time
working in the travel industry, with other volunteer organizations and
travelling to over 60 different countries.
In 2009 Shona co-founded VESA, and acts
as VESA’s Director of International Programs. This sees her setting up
our volunteer projects, meeting with village chiefs and local NGO's and making
sure that our participants have the experience of their lives when they choose
to travel on a VESA program.
When not on the road, Shona enjoys
relaxing on the beach with a good book and hanging with her rescue dogs.
