After graduating from Valdosta State University with a degree in political science, Shelby Simmons served a plethora of roles for two of the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots political nonprofits. From event planning and executive assistance to grant writing and donor relations, Shelby developed a diverse skill set that allowed her to thrive in other industries.
She then went on to expand her professional career by entering the world of marketing. She is now a partner and Chief Operations Officer of Matchstick Marketing, an Arizona based digital marketing firm specializing in branding strategy, viral campaigns, and innovative hyper-targeted advertising techniques.
Shelby simultaneously served as Director of Administration for Skylab, where she assisted C-suite executives, established procedures and processes for optimization and efficiency, processed all investments, managed investor relations, executed event planning, and generally ensured the trains ran on time.

Shelby considers herself a woman of many hats who loves serving others and spending time with her two pits, Bubba and Bonnie.
