Shelby is originally from Fort Collins, Colorado, where she grew up on a small farming/ranching operation. Active in 4-H and FFA, she showcased her passion for agriculture by raising and exhibiting cattle and hogs in Albany County. Throughout her 4-H years, Shelby honed her entrepreneurial skills by owning and operating her own cattle business. Today, she manages 15 head of Simmental-Angus mother cows in Fort Collins, which not only helps fund her college education but also reflects her commitment to the agricultural industry. Currently pursuing a degree in Agricultural Communications at the University of Wyoming, Shelby is driven by her desire to effectively communicate the importance of agriculture to broader audiences. In addition to her academic pursuits, Shelby is known for her leadership abilities, having held various roles within agricultural organizations like Wyoming Collegiate Cattle Association, where she is now the Vice President! Outside of her studies, she enjoys hiking, photography, and volunteering with local community initiatives. Looking ahead, Shelby is eager to leverage her education and experiences to make a meaningful impact in the field of agricultural communications, advocating for the industry she loves.
