About Shelby

Shelby comes to real estate from a diverse professional background that includes over 13 years in the outdoor retail industry as an owner, manager, merchandiser, and buyer. Her passion for helping people navigate big decisions and keeping them light and fun owes as much to her retail background as it does to her early career experiences coordinating volunteers and athletes for Special Olympics, and as an art therapist working with adults with mental illness.

Originally from coastal South Carolina, Shelby moved to Carrboro in 2010 to be a part of a more welcoming community for LGBTQ families. She and her wife, Sunny, an art education professor at UNC-Greensboro, have a blended family of four children, three cats, and a black Lab mix. Their children attend Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools and as a family enjoy the arts, outdoor life, and the easy social atmosphere of downtown Carrboro.

As the team's lead buyers agent, customer service is Shelbys number one priority. Her goal is to find the right property and help people discover what they really want. With her tireless energy, creative spirit, and good humor, she will make buying a home as exciting and painless as possible.
