Peer Career Advisor
Hometown: Kelso, WA
Hello! My name is Shelby, I'm a Communication major with a minor in Retail Studies hoping to pursue a Public Relations career in the luxury retail industry. This summer I will be interning as a Global Fellow with a boutique in Morocco that partners with women entrepreneurs to create high-end ethical products and preserve craft heritage while encouraging the economic empowerment of its female artisans. Other than being a Peer Career Advisor at the Career Center, I work as a Student Ambassador in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. I'm also a LEAD Scholar!
In my free time, I enjoy reading and writing; dystopian literature is a personal favorite.
My career tip would be to pursue anything you hear about that seems interesting to you; I've always had a passion for travel and service, so when I heard about the Global Fellows program it was a perfect fit. I never would be going where I am this summer if I'd let that information pass me by instead of asking questions and applying.
Fun fact about me is that I have 12 piercings (all in my ears, of course).
