Shelby is New York City based performer, lecturer, and entrepreneur. A classically trained vocalist turned belter, her voice has been heard coast to coast leading national tours and singing alongside some of the country's top symphonies. A stress baker, half marathon runner, and classical pianist, Shelby loves to make goals and chase them on her own personal bucket list.
At the recommendation of college voice teacher, Shelby randomly decided to enter a beauty pageant and 21 months later found herself finishing in the Top 12 at the Miss America Pageant as Miss Missouri 2013. She was voted "Best Personality" by CNN and Entertainment Weekly. She went on to make over 300 appearances motivationally speaking to over 17,000 of Missouri's children. She still makes appearances as an emcee, vocalist, or motivational speaker as a former Miss Missouri.
Once in New York, Shelby started New York Newbies, an informational seminar for New York hopefuls on the logistical side of moving to New York to pursue your dreams. "From ECC's to EPA's and Broker Fee's to Side Hustles, we've got all the info you need to be #bookedandblessed." She has taken this seminar and auditioning masterclass to high schools and colleges across the country.
With her bucket list in one hand and a Diet Coke in the other, Shelby is just a Midwestern gal taking on the Big Apple one adventure at a time.
