Shauna Edson is a pre-school dropout and lifelong learner, currently getting paid to facilitate awe experiences with visitors at the National Air and Space Museum’s Public Observatory. Before discovering this dream job of Astronomy Educator, Shauna worked as an environmental consultant, writing hazardous materials reports and wondering if she would ever get to actually use her geology degree or work on something that excited her. Thankfully, the Museum seems to appreciate Shauna’s enthusiasm about all things Earth and space science-related. When she’s not bouncing about the latest astronomical discovery, she’s rehearsing with her modern dance company or playing with her two cats, Simon and River.
