Shea Wales

Project Associate, Sustainable Packaging Coalition

Shea joined the Forest Products Team in July 2019. Her science background, collaborative spirit and passion for the sustainable sourcing and recovery of forest products complements her role at GreenBlue, where she writes technical and communications content, conducts research, helps facilitate member collaboratives. Shea received her MS from Virginia Commonwealth University where she studied Forest Ecology. Her research sought to understand how stand age, disturbance history and climate variability affected temperate forest growth (carbon sequestration). She also holds a BS in Environmental Biology and a minor in Environmental Policy from Fort Lewis College in Durango, CO.

In her free time, Shea enjoys reading, cooking, and exploring new places!
