My name is Shelby and I am a young professional who has been lucky enough to combine my passion for horses with a career in digital media.
I competed throughout my time at the University of Georgia where I graduated in 2015 with a degree in Digital Media Marketing. I was part of the founding UGA Eventing Team, and eventually became the Vice President in 2014.
I’m an eventer through-and-through, so when I was offered a job with the U.S. Eventing Association (USEA), I jumped at the chance. As Communications Coordinator, I managed all the digital content for the Association, including website, social media and email marketing efforts. Here, I learned my passion for journalism, especially that of the equine variety! Check out all my published work with them, here.
In May of 2017, I took a leap of faith and stepped out on my own offering freelance writing, photography and digital media services. Want to promote your brand, pursue a story or need someone experienced in live event coverage? Shoot me an email at email@example.com
My horse “Justin” is a 2003 backyard mutt. What he lacks in elite breeding he makes up for with his heart of gold. He will jump the moon for you, but he may also try to buck you off on the landing. I started riding him in 2012, and we currently compete in eventing.
