hi. I’m Shelby.
I'm a mid-20's woman looking to make an impact on the world, aren't we all?
I believe in the theory of planned happenstance! A chance to turn serendipity into opportunity.
I am in graduate school training to be a counselor, more specifically a play therapist.
I believe sharing our stories with the world can create an open-minded community.
I believe when women support each other amazing things can happen.

How it Began
I founded Project Rise Up as a way to inspire change as I work on my counseling degree at Texas State University.
My passion is working with children who have experienced trauma. Some may say, "isn't that sad?" but I believe this is where the hope lies.
As a student, entrepreneur, graduate assistant, daughter, and dog mom I understand the many responsibilities women must uphold. Follow my blog for life hacks, acts of kindness, and my journey to fight the mental health stigma.
