Shelby supports the day-to-day operational needs for the organization, while also providing administrative support to the team as they engage with clients.
Shelby enjoys being behind-the-scenes, helping ease the workload of her team and finding solutions to operational deficiencies. After graduating from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Cultural Anthropology, Shelby knew she wanted to work with people in a meaningful way, and help contribute to solving injustices in her community.
Shelby joined VLC in the Fall of 2019 to learn the ins-and-outs of the sector, and find where her heart and interests are within nonprofit work. A people person to the core, she loves connecting and learning from others, and serving where it is needed - something that was instilled in her by her parents, who volunteered in their local community through various efforts in the public school system. Shelby currently resides in the Bay Area and enjoys hiking, live music, family time, and searching for the best tacos.
