She spends a lot of her free time working out, but that doesn’t stop her from enjoying pizza, tacos, burgers, and ice cream. Shelby is pursuing a degree in Marketing with an emphasis on Design at Southeast Technical Institute. Her design creativity started at a young age when she would design “million dollar” houses and try selling them to her neighborhood friends. Hear more from Shelby below!

Hi, I’m Shelby!

I’m from Tea, SD and I'm in the process of finishing my degree in Marketing with an emphasis on Design at Southeast Technical Institute. I’m also a Combat Medic and Patient Administration Specialist in the SD Army National Guard. When I’m not working or going to school, you can catch me enjoying a nice, hot cup of coffee in the morning or a delightful glass of wine in the evening. I also enjoy working out, running, and spending time outdoors.

Who inspires you?

The most inspirational person in my life is my mom. She has taught me more than I could ever repay her for. Her hardwork and dedication to everything she does, doesn’t go unnoticed. I (obviously) wouldn’t be where I am today if it wasn’t for her, she constantly pushes me to do better. She’s truly my rock.

I love every country concert I’ve ever been to, but Florida Georgia Line takes the cake.

My favorite place in the world and the furthest place I’ve travelled is Costa Rica. Everything about it was absolutely amazing; the food, the culture, the people. I loved it all and hope to return someday.

If you could be any animal, which would you be? And why?

I would be an elephant because they’re intelligent, lovable, and gentle animals who stick together through everything, and I think that really reflects who I am as a person.

The Last Mrs. Parrish

The Notebook or Step Brothers or Taken or Remember the Titans or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days or The Dark Knight or American Sniper or Despicable Me - I have too many favorites to just pick one.

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?

I’m very afraid of heights so the craziest thing I’ve ever done is zip-lining. I’d like to go skydiving someday though.

My favorite meal is a good burger and fries. The best burger I’ve ever had was at Hell’s Kitchen in Minneapolis. If you haven’t been there before, you need to try the Juicy Lucifer.

My family doesn’t have many traditions that are unique from the typical holiday traditions, but we love spending time together and always have a good laugh.

Who is your favorite superhero?

Wonder Woman is my favorite superhero because she’s loving, kind, and just. She fights for what she believes in and she gives the female fan base someone to look up to.
