Shelby has been such a gem to talk with and get to know. What’s nice about Shelby is that she has many real life experiences so she can relate to the ups and downs of pursuing a wild idea. Shelby is fun, curious but also extremely kind hearted. So stoked to have met her & honored to be a part of the WIWL tribe!
