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 livable and sustainable by solving problems that lie at the intersection of transportation, technology, and the built environment.
To that end, she has spent the past two summers interning in New York City. In 2017, she worked at the Department of Parks and Recreation, researching ways in which green space will be impacted by new development, and how the department can modify its parks to better serve local residents. In 2018, she worked with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's Transit-Oriented Development group, exploring opportunities for the agency to incorporate emerging mobility technologies and services to address first-last mile challenges faced by commuters.
Shannon is one of the student leaders of GreenLight, a CBEY program that hosts ideation workshops with organizations at the intersection of business and the environment. She is also a founding member of Take Action Tuesday, a Student Interest Group that provides the FES community 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.
