What Shelby Does at the Foundation

Shelby provides accounting services as well as administrative support to the Finance and HR departments. In this role she juggles the various day-to-day financial operations.She is most passionate about her job because what she does on a daily basis is much more rewarding and important for the Foundation. "There’s a lot more than just crunching numbers as an accountant; there’s solving problems, strategic decision making, collaborating with the different departments here at the Foundation, and leading process improvements."

When Shelby's Not Working

When she's not working most of the time you’ll find her outdoors; at the beach, by a pool, on the boat, or riding horses. Spending time with family and friends is also very important to her. Shelby is currently a student at the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg working towards a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Accounting. If I’m not working or studying and can get the free time I love to travel and take opportunities to see what else is out there.
