Shelby graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a degree in sociology and a minor in feminist studies. She began as a Case Management Intern at Bakersfield Angels, but quickly grew a huge heart for our programs and mission. When offered a position to ‘officially’ join the team, she couldn’t say yes quick enough.
She has a love for helping others in her community which leads her towards a future in social work, and she will begin her MSW next Fall. She says, “I have been inspired in ways I never thought possible. I feel great passion for each of the youth, their families, and the volunteers we walk alongside, because I have seen the deep and personal impact that these programs are creating. I am so encouraged as I walk into this space each and every day.” Shelby is so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this team and can’t wait to see what the future holds!
