Sheena McFeely was born in Hong Kong to an Irish father and Asian-European mother. Shortly after her parents’ discovery of Sheena being Deaf, America called their names. Sheena, the first in her family to attend college, graduated from CSUN with a BA in Visual Communications and received her MA in Sign Language Education from Gallaudet University.
Sheena is best known for founding ASL Nook, an online hub of ASL teaching webisodes that has received numerous acclaims from viewers, schools, and media.
In 2016, Sheena released a video “10 Deaf Children, 1 Powerful Message” which became a viral hit with over 4 million views. Her work has been featured in UpWorthy, KVUE ABC news, Kickstarter, Austin Woman Magazine, The Huffington Post, Mental_Floss, Deaf People, Ability Magazine, and The Nate Berkus Show.
