Shelby is a 22-year-old creator and curator located in the Kansas City area. Stuck in between being a millennial and a Gen Z, coincidently she is often coined as being an old soul. Shelby developed a passion for the vast worlds of fashion, beauty and journalism at a young age with the purchase of her first Nylon magazine (pre-digital magazine age) and has continued her passion into her semi-adulthood.
“My favorite part about Shelby is her brain. I’m around a lot of physically beautiful people, and Shelby is one of them. But it is her wit and intelligence that captivates me.” – Robin Jones Gifford
Being a proud woman with a to-do list, when Shelby is not the inventive brunette behind all things Bustling Brunette, she is a social and content strategist for media agencies and beauty and clothing brands alike. She loves being able to create and collaborate in new and creative spaces. She also enjoys binge watching ‘80s movies, being overly caffeinated, and discussing her feminist agenda.
“In the future, I see Shelby kicking ass and taking names.” – Abby Scanlon
Shelby is currently a college senior attending the University of Kansas, but Nebraska is where she calls home. She is studying Strategic Communication in the William Allen White School of Journalism & Mass Communications, with a minor in Leadership Studies. Shelby stays involved on campus through her sorority, Sigma Kappa.
