Sheena grew up just outside of Washington D.C. and has been passionate about nature and wildlife ever since she was young. She earned her B.S. in Biology at Longwood University where she graduated in 2015 and where her interest in birds first began when she took an ornithology course. Upon graduating, Sheena started volunteering at a nature center where she assisted in the husbandry and upkeep of six captive non-releasable birds. She went on to accept an internship working on the Chesapeake Bay bird banding osprey and monitoring wood duck nest boxes for a nationally recognized and ongoing wildlife conservation project. Sheena got into the field of avian wildlife rehabilitation when she began working at the Vermont Institute of Natural Science where she rehabbed raptors, songbirds, and waterfowl.
