Employee Spotlight - Shanna


What do you enjoy most about working at RE2?

I enjoy the people most. Everyone here is so friendly, helpful, and unique. It's great to work at a place where everyone works together and you know you can ask anyone for help.


What task(s) would you most like to see a robotic arm perform?
I would love a robotic arm that could fold T-shirts perfectly. It is my least favorite part of laundry day.


What is your favorite robot (real or fictional)?
Wall-E and EVE. I think they complement each other well. He is a hopeless romantic with a positive outlook and she is a badass who does not let anything stop her. Plus, EVE is the hero, since her love brings back his memories!


What do you enjoy about living in Pittsburgh?
I've lived in Pittsburgh my entire life and I have enjoyed seeing the city grow into what it has become today. I also love that Pittsburgh has the National Aviary and Phipps Conservatory.


What other jobs have you held?
Before coming to RE2, I worked at a Family Law Firm as a legal assistant, working on divorce and custody cases. I also worked at a human rights nonprofit as a student liaison, where I went out to classrooms and events to educate and recruit volunteers. I worked at the same nonprofit as a news document coordinator, where I researched and compiled data about human trafficking to be distributed to agencies throughout the US.


When you’re not working, how do you enjoy spending your time?
I like baking sweets (like cookies and cakes), going to concerts, reading, running, and yoga.
