Shelby fell in love with journalism at a young age when her parents were approached by a teacher saying they could see her on NBC one day. Since then, she has worked towards that goal. Her love for photography and travelling also blossomed at a very young age. She has been to most of the Caribbean, Ireland, and she studied abroad in Greece. Shelby hopes to one day be able to travel the world and capture pictures.
During her years at WVU, Shelby interned with WTOV9. She was able to experience life as a reporter, and found her passion in doing this. Her dream job is to be a news anchor for a large network. After graduation, Shelby plans on returning home to work at a local news station, but is opening to travelling as well.
