A native of Albert Town, Jamaica, Shua attended Swarthmore College, where he earned a B.A in economics, with a minor in history. Upon graduation, his interest in the challenges of governance and public policy led him to a career with PFM (Public Financial Management Group Consulting) and subsequently KPMG, in their State and Local Government advisory practices. There, he began to specialize in multi-year financial and strategic planning initiatives, particularly in the spheres of municipal budgeting, infrastructure, and health/human services. In these roles, he has served clients at multiple levels of government including the State of Tennesee, Harris County (TX), and the City of Philadelphia. At Princeton, Shua hopes to refocus on the economic policy challenges facing developing states, with a particular eye to the development possibilities facing the Caribbean.
