Shelby has spent her post-college years ping-ponging herself around the Americas and the Caribbean. Somewhere between the 28-hour bus rides, living on a sailboat, living in the most remote town in the lower 48, and stargazing on many a mountaintop, she discovered what she wanted out of life. She's making it her life mission to preserve and protect wild places and to educate others on living in harmony with nature. When she's not on this wild goose chase of becoming a writer, she can be found compulsively researching van life and living off the grid, on a mountain, or some sort of boat.
