Her favorite characters to play are the ones that have some sort of conflict where she can delve deeper and bring that character to life. Her other love is animals, she has a Collie named Roxie and just adopted a black cat named Milo. Shelby volunteers at a local Humane Society when she has free time. Shelby plans to attend the University of North Carolina School of the Arts where she hopes to continue acting and movie making.
