Shaina Cavazos's Profile
Shaina is the assistant director of community outreach and a graduate student at the Missouri School of journalism. She graduated with her bachelor's degree in journalism and economics in December 2012 from MU. She originally hails from the northwest suburbs of Chicago, and as a result, misses Portillo's italian beef every day.
A seasoned Missourian vet (in student terms), Shaina has been a copy editor, a member of the community outreach team, an assistant news editor, an assistant city editor and an education beat reporter.
Shaina reprised her role as an ACE during the summer of 2013. During the fall semester, she will work as the assistant director of community outreach. Someday, she hopes to turn her obsession with education and education policy into a reporting and editing career.
When Shaina is not in the newsroom, she spends time with her equally journalism-obsessed friends, teaches Sunday School at Congregation Beth Shalom, reads and cooks. She also loves Chinese food, historical fiction, the X-Files and baking the occasional challah.
