A Kansas City native and graduate from the University of Missouri – Columbia (MIZ!), Shelby majored in Human Development and Family Studies with a minor in Leadership and Public Service, landing her a career in non-profit post-college. She called the United Way of Greater Kansas City home for 2 years before she migrated east in 2018 to join her college love, Joe, in his hometown of St. Louis. She was actually planning a non-profit event at The Caramel Room when she reached out to join the team! Known as Sunny to the 23 City Blocks team, Shelby has always been driven by her passion for serving and helping others so is right at home in this industry as we bring our client’s visions to life. Being the morning person of the group, you can always find Sunny with a cold brew in hand, ready to take on the day! She brings optimism and positivity to every situation she encounters. Outside of event planning, Shelby enjoys traveling, a good movie, being a self-proclaimed foodie and concert-going with friends. She misses her family and crew back in KC so takes road trips back home as often as she can with Joe and their hound dog, Copper, in tow.
