Shelby was introduced to ABA when she 15 years old after working with a family friend’s son who had an ASD diagnosis. Shelby, originally from Wrens, Georgia, began pursuing a career in psychology at the University of Georgia. After meeting her husband, she moved to Omaha and graduated from UNO in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
Shelby began her graduate studies in Neuroscience with the hopes of conducting autism-related research. However, after realizing her passion for working directly with people, Shelby transferred to the Applied Behavior Analysis program and received her Master’s degree in ABA in 2018. Shelby completed her practicum under the supervision of Licensed Psychologists at the Munroe-Meyer Institute. She became a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and a Provisionally Licensed Mental Health Practitioner in 2019.
While Shelby enjoys providing early intervention services, her favorite part of the job is parent training. In her free time, Shelby is usually trying out new recipes or going on adventures with her husband, daughter, son, and two pups, Zoey and Ella.
