What Shanda likes best about working at Cape Abilities is "the caring people that are here," both staff and workers. In the farm operation she handles administrative work, notably the Salad Club. A native of Rainelle, West Virgina, Shanda came to the Cape in 1972 and to Cape Abilities in 2005. For 10 years, she ran an azalea farm in Brewster. Her favorite Cape place is Paines Creek in Brewster. Shanda, who still has a noticeable West Virgina accent, says her favorite local activity is letting Cape Cod people think she's a tourist then telling them she's from Brewster. Her favorite hobby is photography.
