About Sheena McFeely

AUTHOR’S BACKGROUND

Sheena McFeely was born in Hong Kong to an Irish father and a Hong Kongese mother. Shortly after her parents’ discovery of Sheena being Deaf, America called their names. Since then, Sheena has grown into a visionary businesswoman and passionate children’s book author. 

Being the first in her family to go to college, Sheena graduated from CSUN with a BA in Visual Communications. Thanks to her educational background, the birth of two daughters, and the development of  ASL Nook, an online hub of videos of her family teaching ASL, the children’s book series, Shay & Ivy, was born.

Shay & Ivy children’s book series will touch on moments from her and her two kids’ lives teaching us what is more important. Her first book will be ready late Spring 2015. In Fall 2015, the first Shay & Ivy App will be released incorporating American Sign Language (ASL) with the beautiful narrative of the book to please the eyes and heart.

Recently, Sheena received her Masters in Sign Language Education at Gallaudet University last Summer 2015. When not working, you will find her watching her favorite TV show, Vampire Diaries, snapping photos of real life moments, and chasing her girls around.
