Shelby is Destiny Studios resident "out of towner". She was borned and raised in Alaska and moved to Texas about five years ago.
People ask her all the time, "What made you move from ALASKA to TEXAS?" Her response is, she found her people and decided to stay and call this place home.
In addition to coaching vocalists, Shelby loves working with songwriters to craft their gift and songwriting style. Shelby started writing and performing regularly with her twin sister, Sydney, when she was 16. Sydney & Shelby has recorded two albums featuring all original songs (It’s Time and Circles EP). Shelby brings 15 years of musical experience to the Destiny Voice & Music Studio team, and her teaching methods are practical, creative, and encouraging.
Shelby is passionate about seeing this next generation live up to their potential. Shelby currently leads worship at Creekwood Students, the youth ministry at Creekwood Church, Mansfield.
Outside of teaching music, Shelby loves to tell jokes, drink coffee, and watch Parks and Recreation.
