A Detroit native, Shaalan landed in Anthem by way of Philadelphia, Chestertown, Cairo, and New York City.

She studied photography at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts and earned a bachelor’s degree in advertising at Michigan State University.

Shaalan spent nearly a decade in Cairo, Egypt where she worked for Fotouh Promo 7 ad agency handling promotions for Gillette, Coca-Cola, Carrier and Schlumberger.

She helped create and operate Zeitouna, a publishing company specializing in books on Arab and Egyptian art, architecture and archaeology. Zeitouna also produced annual reports and marketing pieces for multi-national clients including American Express Travel and Sheraton Hotels.

Stateside, she was lucky enough to land a position as designer with the Philadelphia Inquirer where she was honored to spend nine years working alongside supremely talented, dedicated and principled colleagues.

In 2005, Shaalan moved to Arizona with the love of her life, Robert Britt, and the center of her universe, their three beautiful children, to be closer to family and able to see more of the sky.
