A lifelong animal lover, Shelby is thrilled have joined the FACE team and to be an influential advocate for animals. She has a Bachelor of Social Work with a minor in writing from Point Loma Nazarene University and a Master of Social Work with an emphasis in community-based impact from the University of Southern California.

Here at FACE, Shelby manages our social media channels, researches and writes for prospective grant opportunities, and assists with FACE grant applicants.  “I love FACE because our work is so unique and important to those we assist. We truly get to experience making a huge impact in the lives of so many people!” Shelby is also interested in getting more involved with FACE’s community programs, such as our Homeless Outreach Program. In her free time, Shelby loves reading, traveling, and getting to know all the neighborhood dogs of Ocean Beach!
