After a year spent traveling the state of Missouri, Shelby made over 306 appearances, majority being public speaking in schools and as an advocate for helping childrne of abuse and neglect through CASA( Court Appointed Special Advocates). She has a true passion for motivationally speaking to young people on varying topics close to her heart. Shelby became Miss Missouri all because a college professor told her to put it on her bucketlist she had had since the fifth grade. Shelby loves to inspire others with her story of how that bucketlist kept her on track, setting goals, and making plans to reach them, even when they are as crazy as trying to become Miss America.
Shelby also loves to speak on self-esteem and bullying and the impact being the victim of bullying had in her life, obstacles she overcame, and how they shaped us into the person we become.

-Dreaming Big and Keeping a Bucketlist

-Self-Esteem: Who You Are Is Enough
-Girl Talk: Bullying, Boys, and Building Each Other Up
