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.
