Shannon Dulaney is a Master of Environmental Management (MEM) and MBA candidate at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (FES) and the School of Management (SOM). She is interested in creating cities that are more sustainable, resilient, and livable, particularly through the design and integration of green and open space. To that end, she spent the summer of 2017 interning in New York City, splitting her time between the Parks Department and 596 Acres, a non-profit community land access organization.
At FES, Shannon is one of the co-leaders of the Climate Change Student Interest Group and one of the founding members of Take Action Tuesday, an advocacy group that provides students with the opportunity to regularly translate their environmental commitments to policy action. Prior to pursuing her masters, Shannon worked in Honda North America's Washington D.C. office, where she led the company's lobbying efforts on chemicals, connected vehicles, and workforce development.
Originally from Los Angeles, she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of California, San Diego in 2008. She is joined in New Haven by her husband, Jay.
