Michelle Shanahan

San Diego |  Job Captain

I was born and raised in beautiful San Diego and have lived all over Southern California since completing my bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts at UC San Diego in 2013. Before starting the Master of Landscape Architecture program at Cal Poly Pomona in 2018, I worked as a graphic designer for a boutique marketing firm. My interests in landscape architecture encompass designing spaces that symbiotically improve the well-being of the community and the environment.

In my down time, you’ll likely find me outside either horseback riding, riding my bike or hiking with my husband, Kenny and our dog, Bear. I also love traveling, cooking, and quickly completing 1,000-piece puzzles.
