Shea is a Human Resources Business Partner for her family's store. She has had this role for that past 4-5 years, but has been working for the business since she was a kid. After graduating college, she took on more responsibilities in the store and then went on to complete her master's in Psychology. Now, she is hoping to lend her expertise to another organization's HR department and pivot out of the family business.
