About Brian Shea

A Little about Me. I was born and raised in Albany NY.  Went to Maria College and received an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education, then went on to Empire State College receiving a Bachelors Degree in Psychology,  from there I went to State University of NY at Albany earning a Masters Degree in Social Work in 1999. 

I have 2 wonderful children and 4 outstanding grandchildren.  I moved to Deland Florida with my life partner Emily Glasser in 2011. I have been working for Halifax Health Hospice as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) since that time.  In the Fall of 2017, I rode my first MS long distance ride, riding across the  Southern part of the United States (3070 miles from San Diego to St. Augustine),  This journey took us 52 days riding with 17 outstanding human beings. 

 

I NEED YOUR HELP!  I am riding my bicycle from Lands End, England to John O'Groats, Scotland, a total of 1020 mountainous miles, over 15 days. My purpose is to help raise money with the hope of helping to find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.  I am committed to raising at least $1020 (1 dollar/mile).  The ride starts July 13th in the Southern tip of England (Lands Ends)  and weaves North, finishing at John O'Groats, Scotland July 28th. 

What motivated me to do this? I am a Hospice Social Worker.  Every day on my job, I support families and patients as they prepare to deal with death and grief.  With this ride,  I am helping support the hope for a cure for the living. I have been working for Hospice the last 7 years. I am taking 3 weeks off at my own expense in support of this cause.
