Shauna Fitzgerald

Museum of Science Fiction
Vice President, Special Events and Planning

Science fiction has been a part of Shauna’s life since she was three years old. Her earliest memories include watching reruns of The Twilight Zone and Star Trek. In high school and college, she often convinced her English teachers to let her read and write reports on science fiction novels rather than the required classics (sorry, Chaucer!). Shauna has a particular interest in the adaptation of science fiction literature for stage and film. After many years of working at universities and nonprofits, she now works in the tech industry and spends her free time supporting nonprofits in the community. In addition to volunteering with the Museum of Science Fiction, she serves on the Board of Directors for Light Switch Dance Theatre (Washington, DC).
