She is converting years of volunteering in education into a new career, after having practiced law, founding two businesses, and publishing a picture book about the Zoroastrian creation myth called Hello World!
Shazneen graduated from Georgetown University Law Center at the turn of the millennium and had a commercial litigation practice in New York City and Tokyo. In 2015, she founded Shirin’s Spoon LLC, a business that created and sold organic meals primarily in the Los Angeles area.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Shazneen saw her role as a school volunteer expand and she began to pursue a career in education primarily aimed at providing services in Title 1 schools in Los Angeles.
