Shelby started at MN Hands & Voices/Lifetrack in July of 2019. She serves as a Deaf and Hard of Hearing Guide (DHH Guide), which includes assisting the Parent Guides at In-Person visits.
Shelby is currently going to school to become a Teacher of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Her hope is that working with MN Hands & Voices will give her experience working with families and their children to provide resources and accommodations because this is a big part of being a Deaf and Hard of Hearing Teacher.
Shelby lives north of the cities, growing up in the great outdoors. She is the youngest of 5 kids with 3 older brothers and one sister. Her mom is very hardworking and always there to help. Her dad passed away when she was little, but she is happy to have had a chance to make memories with him while he was alive. His death is what led her to be close with her aunts and uncles.
Shelby loves to go hiking and be active in sports. Softball, volleyball and hockey are her favorite sports. She also took up ceramics and enjoys making figurines along with cups and bowls. In her spare time she goes swing dancing, reads books, and goes for walks with her dog.
For many years Shelby would babysit for a few kids, so she enjoys working with kids. She has volunteered for numerous children’s carnivals as well as participate in outings with deaf and hard of hearing children.
