She then moved to Edinburgh, Scotland in 1999 where she finished school and completed a Masters degree in Management with Business Law. She followed that with a second Masters in Marketing at the University of Bath.
Shauna played indoor volleyball from 2000 to 2006 and represented Scotland indoor national team from 2003 to 2006.
She represented Great Britain at the World University Beach Champs in Cyprus in 2006 and moved to Bath to be part of GB beach volleyball programme also in 2006.
