Hello my fellow golf addicts! My name is Shelby and I'm a part-time Professional Golfer and club fitter. I was born and raised in Lima, OH and graduated from the University of Findlay in 2017 with two accounting degrees and an MBA and with All-American status. Golf continues to be a big part of my life! I have played on a handful of tours including the WAPT in the hopes of one day playing on the LPGA Tour. My husband and I just moved back home to Findlay, Ohio from New Orleans, LA where I was practicing at TPC Louisiana. Back at my old stomping grounds practicing for tourneys and club fitting! I am around golf all day long whether it's helping folks on Curated or in person with their equipment needs or adjusting equipment for my own. I'm constantly learning about golf and how to improve my game. I'm so excited to talk golf with you and find the best and CORRECT equipment for you!

Growing up in the mountains of Idaho, I started skiing when I was 5. It wasn't until 6 years later, I hopped on my first snowboard and fell in love! Trips to the mountain turned into a weekend ritual. Nowadays I spend the season getting on as much gear as possible. I love to share the stoke for snowboarding! My favorite terrain is riding deep powder through the trees. Just let me know what you are looking for, your timeline, your budget, etc. I know the market and I will always look out for your riding season and your wallet. I'm always happy to find a better price, a different style or put things on hold if that's better for you. My ultimate end goal is getting you set up with your dream gear.

Originally from Warwick, Rhode Island, I moved to the Minneapolis area where I began my career on the ground floor, working as a line cook. It was there that I discovered my passion and fell in love with food and the culinary industry. I then moved into a Sous Chef position at a Minneapolis hotel. This is where I honed my skills under the watchful eye of the Executive Chef, who was also a former culinary instructor. Eventually, I became the Executive Chef, taking the reins from my mentor. From there, I continued my career leading the kitchens of various establishments, including my own full-service catering company. I transitioned into a corporate chef and taught hundreds of cooking and knife skill classes, from Alaska to Hawaii, Florida to Maine and everywhere in between. I also was featured on the main stage at several wine and food events across the country. I appeared in many local and national TV spots. Currently I continue to share my passion for cooking and teaching and I would love to help you discover the right tools for you and help you become the best you can be in the kitchen!

Growing up in Chicago, my passion for food started early while cooking in the kitchen with my Italian Grandma. She taught me the simplicity of high quality ingredients, cooked with proper technique. This lead me to culinary school at The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Being there for four years really solidified that this was the field I was meant to be in for the rest of my life. I learned how to cook every cuisine and met fellow classmates from around the globe. I graduated in 2008 with honors, with a Bachelors Degree in Culinary Arts Management. From there I worked in kitchens all over the states, from New York to San Francisco, Los Angeles, and ultimately ending up in Chicago again. I explored every position from baking to pastry, hot appetizers, fish, and grill stations. In my 18 years of experience, I've had the opportunity to work in kitchen management as a Chef and in the Front of House as a General Manager. The thing that I LOVE about this industry is that it has allowed me to learn something new every single day. Throughout the years I have had the opportunity to work with all different kinds of cooking equipment, cookware and knives both in professional kitchens and at home. I am excited to share all of my knowledge with you!
