Senior Product Designer @ MasterClass

5.0 stars
5.0 (14 reviews)

California-based designer with 7 years of experience working in start-ups, mid-size companies, and larger enterprises. I love using design as a language to communicate complex ideas and file them down into a simple user experience. After earning my BFA in Graphic Design, I split my career diving into product design and design systems at Zillow, Google, Facebook, Zendesk, Gladly, and now at MasterClass.

I’m here to support with:
- Finding a new job (I've helped 4 mentees in less than a year being on MentorCruise find new jobs within product design)
- Finding champions in your workplace
- Being a woman in tech and finding your support team
- Understanding your job offer letters (stock options, salary, signing bonuses, etc)
- Career development (more than just where you see yourself in 5 years. What really drives you? How can find the right job that makes you happy? Steps on how to level up in your organization)
- Portfolio reviews and whiteboard session prep
- Navigating workplace dynamics and managing conflict like a boss

I’m interested in supporting women, underrepresented minority groups, and the LGBTQIA community.

"I'm a jr. designer on Mentor Cruise looking for ways to level up and land a job. Shelby has been very helpful in getting me to think differently about my portfolio. I like the homework she gives and being held accountable to produce something before each session. I feel like she's helping me tackling the barriers that I need to in order to land a job and I am becoming a better designer along the way."
