Prior to her time at Northwestern, Shea’na served as a Student-Athlete Mentor (SAM) where she worked with at-risk student-athletes to develop a plan for academic success.

What you need to know about Shea'na Grigsby Shea’na loves to read and is very competitive. When she has had a stressful day you can either find her at the mall for “retail therapy” or working out. She loves to challenge herself and will take on anything as long as she hasn’t crossed it off her bucket list. Another tidbit about Shea’na is that she has an identical twin sister who also works with students, but in a high school setting. A motto she lives by is: “Live, laugh, love!”
