In her hometown of Abbotsford BC, Shelby grew up with many activities such as gymnastics and hockey. Her passion for healthcare began 6 years ago when she graduated with a certificate in Primary Care Paramedicine at the Justice Institute of BC.
When deciding on a career change, Shelby was reminded of her personal experience as a patient at Sumas Mtn Sport and Spine that brought her chronic pain to an end. This led her to attend Vancouver Career College in 2021 where she received her diploma in Registered Massage Therapy in 2023.
In her spare time, Shelby can still be found on the ice playing hockey or camping with her family.
