Shelby was raised by a family of educators and earned her bachelor’s degree from California State University, Channel Islands where her focus was teaching and learning. She is driven by her experience that most of us learn by doing. Her love of traveling, culture, food, and science led her to the field of Dietetics. Shelby graduated from California State University, Los Angeles as Summa Cum Laude of her class with a Master’s Degree in Nutritional Science. Through her work as a Dietitian Nutritionist, she soon realized how confusing our cultural norms and “diet-y” lifestyle can be for those who are trying to best take care of themselves.
Shelby enjoys helping others learn and apply healthful behaviors that promote a positive relationship with food and improve well-being. Since food is utilized to show love, to celebrate, and to nourish ourselves, mending this relationship allows us to best take care ourselves and fully enjoy the present moment. This is Shelby’s overarching goal as a Dietitian Nutritionist.
Shelby enjoys living a balanced life and finds inspiration in the mountains and on the water where she spends most of her free time.
