Shelby has been working in communications since her junior year of college, when she was a press intern for the 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee in Charlotte. She decided to take a semester off of from her senior year at Davidson College and went to work on President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and the 2012 Presidential Inaugural Committee.
After finishing up school, Shelby moved back to D.C. to work for campaign consultant Joe Trippi, before heading to Philadelphia to work on the 2016 Democratic National Convention. As the Innovation Coordinator, Shelby managed the relationships with the major technology providers and coordinated the live streaming of the 2016 DNC, which streamed on more platforms than ever before. She most recently served in the Obama administration as a Deputy Press Secretary at the Department of Agriculture.
Shelby is a proud Davidson College alum, but stays true to her Kentucky roots as a Louisville sports fan. When she isn’t teaching indoor cycling class at Zengo Cycle, you can find her at home cooking an Ina Garten recipe or watching the New England Patriots.
