A LOOK INTO MY ENTREPRENEURIAL JOURNEY
Shane Ramsey is an up and coming pioneer in the world of information science and environmental engineering. In a professional arena where “hard skills”, such as coding are favored over “soft attributes” like communications and management, Shane has the best of both worlds. As an entrepreneur, Shane is currently assistant manager to Kelly’s Tours in the Virgin Islands. His work includes managerial accounting and representing the company in various promotional endeavors. Being a student at Cornell University in Ithaca, he often has to telecommunicate. However, as an excellent manager and coordinator this is no challenge for him. Moving forward, Shane is working on streamlining the company by directing all company functions through a newly designed website. Once this task is complete, he wants to start another entrepreneurial project related to expanding accessible information within the scientific community.
From a child, Shane was always an avid learner in science. He received his first telescope at the age of eight and began doing experiments from his backyard. At the age of 16 he participated in NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center’s Internship Program, where he programed a LiDAR camera for 3-D imagery. His other endeavors have been devoted to meteorology and oceanography. In 2014, he collected and analyzed meteorological data for the United States Virgin Islands and surrounding territories. His research concluded with a report to the National Weather Service in Puerto Rico. As a mentor, Shane is heavily focused on engaging students outside his field through his research and interactive presentations.
