Shawna excitedly joined the YVC team as a program director in Wichita in 2019. She first became involved in service-learning programs, both domestically and internationally, while attending Kansas State University, and those experiences have inspired her life ever since. She hopes to offer the same transformational experiences for youth through YVC! Shawna has a master’s degree in counseling and a bachelor’s degree in family studies and human services. She has worked in education as a teacher, program director, and school counselor for 7+ years. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, crafting, and spending time outside. Shawna looks forward to making fun and meaningful memories with our wonderful Wichita-area youth this summer!
In 2019, McKenna joined the YVC team as one of the Wichita program directors. She is currently a student-athlete at Wichita State University, double majoring in Secondary Education and History and competing in cross country and track and field. In her hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, McKenna gained experience with youth in a vast variety of settings including coaching soccer and co-teaching summer programs. McKenna is most excited to form lasting relationships and have a positive impact on the youth involved in YVC. In her free time, she loves doing anything active outside, reading, and being around friends and family.
