Shelby was raised in the beautiful Snoqualmie Valley in Washington State. She then went to Washington State University, majoring in Criminal Justice. After graduating with honors, she attended Willamette University College of Law.
Continuing her passion for criminal law, she spent two years at the Marion County District Attorney’s Office in Salem, Oregon. While there, she focused on DUII prosecution.
After visiting family in Bend numerous times, she decided to continue her legal career there, this time focusing on criminal defense.
Shelby’s goal is to ensure that her clients are well-informed about their case in order to make the best decisions going forward. In addition to her case load, Shelby volunteers with the Lawyer in the Library program and is on the board of Deschutes Family Recovery.
In her spare time, Shelby enjoys everything Bend has to offer outdoors with her husband and two dogs.
