Shauna Causey, a mainstay of Seattle’s social media community, is a driving force behind the regional chapter of the Social Media Club and the co-founder of Tech Mavens, a non-profit project dedicated to helping women in technology and digital communications.

“I love this city,” she says. “Our tech community works together in a way I haven’t seen in other cities. We don’t take the road alone; we want to help each other be successful.”

Editor’s Note: GeekWire has identified more than a dozen “Geeks Who Give Back” — people who work in non-profits, mentor others and invest in the future of the tech community. They were all featured in the GeekWire 2012 Calendar, given out at the recent GeekWire Gala. As 2011 draws to a close, we’ll highlight one of them every day, along with photography by Seattle’s Red Box Pictures.

Shauna Causey is our calendar honoree for July. See this archive of the profiles we’ve published so far.

Thanks to our calendar sponsor for the month of July, thinkspace, for helping to make this project possible. Stay tuned for more honorees and photos in the days ahead.
