Shelby joined the Scott SWCD team in April 2019 to assist with the Scott Clean Water Education Program (SCWEP), organize Outdoor Education Days, assisting with the various workshops put on by the office, and getting the word out to the community about the Scott SWCD. She also supports the various conservation programs put on by the county.
She grew up in Eden Prairie and earned her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse in biology and environmental science. She previously interned for Scott SWCD in 2017 through the Conservation Corps as an environmental intern. Her other previous work experience includes The River Alliance of Wisconsin monitoring lakes and rivers in La Crosse, and the Minnesota Department of Agriculture in their invasive species program.
While in college, Shelby fell in love with camping, backpacking, canoeing, and musical theater. She has a goal to climb Everest Base Camp by 2021, but until then, you can find her on a trail, in a river, or listening to Broadway albums.
