A native of Pleasant View, Tennessee, Shelby lives in Columbia with her husband, Cody, a football coach and teacher, their two children, Scout and Quinn, and fur child, Sydney. Outside of her professional world, Shelby spends most of her time chasing her daughter around (and soon son in a few months when he starts walking), at football or baseball games or the nearest rodeo (her daughter loves horses).
