On a personal note, Shayna resides in Fairfax, VA and is married to a man who makes her laugh, keeps her grounded and puts up with her FOMO attitude about life. She has two kids who remind her that they’re in charge, who lovingly drag her to all their things and who enjoy day-long snack times. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, dining out and hiking. Her superb organizational skills can be seen in her busy personal and professional calendars, as well as her kitchen drawers and linen closets.
