Shelby is a hands-on marketing professional with over six years of experience across a diverse range of industries.
A turning moment came when Shelby was just 12 years old and was told she could no longer play in her local AFL league because of her gender. Since then, Shelby hasn’t hesitated in speaking up to ask why women aren’t offered the same opportunities as men and calling out sexist and misogynist comments.
Shelby has a Bachelor of Media and Communications (Marketing) from Swinburne University of Technology, where she was elected as the Senior Residential Advisor for her college, which sparked her passion for ensuring stronger female representation in leadership positions.
In an ideal world Shelby would love to see more females in leadership positions across senior positions and female sport in the prime time slot, breaking long-standing male domination in these fields. She would also love to be not be expected to bring the salad to social gatherings with her friends.
