Shelby loves the outdoors and is excited to explore everything Arkansas has to offer. Growing up in Oklahoma, Shelby always knew she wanted to become a meteorologist. It began with a fear of storms, and grew into a passion for learning about the weather so she could stay away from it.
While in college at the University of Oklahoma, Shelby spent two years interning in Oklahoma City for the legendary Gary England. Shelby also interned in Nashville, TN for a summer and spent time at many other stations learning everything she could about the weather. Some of her journeys include visits to Good Morning America and ABC World News with Ginger Zee, The Weather Channel with Mike Bettes, and ABC 33/40 with James Spann to name a few.
When Shelby isn’t talking about the weather you can find her enjoying a good workout, playing with her dog Mr. Speckles who she may or may not treat like her child, or looking for a good fishing spot. She grew up spending every summer at Lake Texoma catching stripers. Shelby has been on a few fishing trips to Beaver Lake but no luck there yet, so she may need your tips!
