Currently a senior producer and director at Blue Suitcase Productions, she produces content for industry leaders such as Indeed, Apple, and TikTok.

Beyond her accomplishments in film production, Shelby’s a trailblazer in raising awareness for pelvic floor disorders — from publishing essays in BUST Magazine and Refinery29, to producing her award-winning short animated film, Tightly Wound. Following a successful festival run, including screenings at Annecy International Animated Film Festival and DOC NYC in 2018, Tightly Wound was acquired by Condé Nast and has over 4 million views on YouTube. The film has garnered attention from prominent platforms such as CBS’s The Doctors, Variety, Cosmopolitan, and IndieWire.

 

An advocate for a sex-positive culture/society, Shelby presented a TEDx talk titled, “Why We All Lose When We Talk About Virginity,” which argued for a more sex-positive framework for early sexual experiences. Furthermore, she demonstrated her leadership by organizing TEDxKoenigLane in 2022 which featured notable speakers such as Olivia Julianna and Dr. Han Ren.

 

Passionate about empowering young people, she’s been a lecturer at The University of Texas at Austin and Texas State University as well as a volunteer with the Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership Conference for over a decade. Outside of work, Shelby shares her joy for dancing as an instructor at DivaDance Austin.
