I am a Denver-based designer with seven 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, MasterClass and now at Turo. I’m interested in supporting women, underrepresented minority groups, and the LGBTQIA community.
I’m here to support with:
- Finding a new job
- Being a woman of color in tech and finding your support team
- Understanding your job offer letters (stock options, salary, signing bonuses, etc.)
- Career development
- Portfolio reviews and whiteboard session prep
Please note the following:
- If you cannot meet on MT, our sessions will be async through MentorCruise's messaging platform.
- If you sign up for a session and do not show up or cancel within less than 24 hours, you will be still be charged for the session.
- I'm proficient in English and basic in Spanish. Ideally, I would love to work with clients who are able to communicate their ideas proficiently in either language!

Shelby has been an exceptional source of inspiration and guidance in my life. I can't thank her enough for the transformative impact she's had on my personal and professional journey. Shelby's wisdom, dedication, and willingness to share her knowledge have been a game-changer. Her mentorship has been a priceless gift, and I feel truly fortunate to have had her as my mentor.

Shelby brought amazing energy and insights to our mentorship sessions! Her energetic, encouraging approach and depth of design/industry expertise made a lasting impact despite our time together being cut short by my increased workload. I’m grateful for the experience and look forward to crossing paths in the future. Thank you, Shelby!

Shelby is one of the best mentors ever! She cares a lot about the project quality, my learnings, and my progress. One thing I like a lot about her mentoring style is that she's willing to do demos for you so you learn what exactly happens in real workplaces. While learning a ton from her, I also received heart-warming encouragement when I have self-doubt. She is such a phenomenal mentor that I want to recommend her to everyone who wants to learn UX and product design.
We will send you a quick email if Shelby has new open spots for mentorship, and only in that case!
