Hope Village Coordinator
Shelby is a longtime resident of Olympia whose passion for Thurston County continues to grow abundantly. She graduated from Western Washington University in 2017 with a BA in Sociology, a minor in Geography, and a minor in Communication Studies-- complete with a large dream of changing the world through human connection, sustainable development, and a community founded on robust services for everyone. With the help of her husband, Zack, they built their very own tiny house which they have lived in for the last two years. Together, they love to garden + raise chickens, explore on skis, bikes, surfboards, cook delicious food, and spend time with their wonderful community. When she is not having fun with Zack or working with Hope Village, she is a wedding + portrait Photographer and runs a small-scale pottery business.
