About me

Shelby is a New York, NY based writer, a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design. In her past experience, she has been responsible for managing, proofing and editing the content on an award-winning online news source, a task you wouldn’t imagine she enjoyed unless you also knew how much she loves cleaning and rearranging books on her shelves (which you can find her doing any given Sunday). She has also worked as a marketing and PR intern at Cincinnati Book Publishing, a subsidized publishing house; and currently make boomerangs, among other suitable, professional content, as social media coordinator at MNS Real Estate.  In her free time, she reads a lot and seeks out delicious and wacky food with that burning hunger that can only be described as FOMO.
