Shea brings a wide range of interests to the team! As a high school student, she has been active with scientific exploration, music, and community service. Shea has conducted important research on the possible use of frog skin secretions in treatment against Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a bacterium that causes infections; participated in marching band for the past four years; and has volunteered over 200 hours with the Ronald McDonald House. She has even participated in three of our Stretch Expeditions: Camino de Santiago, Norway, and the North Pole. Clearly demonstrating our values of curiosity; adventure; and generosity, Shea will be an ideal intern this summer! Come fall, Shea is headed off to college where she’ll be a first-year student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying microbiology.
