When asked the question, "Why Team IMPACT?" Shelby said:
Looking back, athletics has had a huge influence on who I am today. Playing sports helped me make life-long friendships, and gave me a determined and positive outlook on life. When the opportunity arose to work for Team IMPACT, I knew I had to take it – so I could fulfill my passion of doing work that positively impacts the lives of others, while working for an organization that provides children with the opportunity to be a part of something that has given me so much over the years. I continue to be inspired by the strength and courage these children exhibit, and am honored to be able to share their incredible stories with the world.
