"Your life is a path to walk

on, not a box to sit in."

I believe

After Years

 of attempting to fit into different boxes, I'm finally accepting the shape of my own. My fundamental desire is to encourage people to find confidence in their individual mold too. I believe in the power of a positive perspective and hope to be a light to others. I do not have all the answers, and I'm still learning so much about myself. Though if anything, I just hope to be a continuous source of warmth, good energy, and encouragement along the way.

So Who

is Shelby?

I'm an introverted-extrovert by nature (talk about an oxymoron). Personally, I stand on so many points of the spectrum. The strategic, task-oriented part of me longs to establish clear boxes of differentiation. Yet, the ever-inspired artist in my soul leaps willingly into the void spaces. My Spotify playlists range from Beyonce' to Frank Sinatra. I perform improv dance routines while cleaning my house and still enjoy playing dress up. Unlike Drake's Hotline Bling lyrics, I'm not running out of pages in my passport, but wanderlust is pushing me to new places. I'm socially-conscious and finding my own voice on issues that matter to me.

At the end of the day


I'm still the doe-eyed 6-year old imagining the possibilities of all she could see and experience in life. A mellow soul with a big smile and a heart to match. Wanting to make people feel seen and heard for who they are. I've experienced first-hand being rejected for who I am and it influences everything I do. I know why I'm on this earth, but I aim to help others discover their "Why" too. I work hard for what I want and believe nothing worth having comes easy. I'm just out here chasing my dreams and designing the life I imagine. I hope in time we can get to know each other more!
