Shelby Farmer grew up in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. She graduated from Los Osos High School and immediately attended Azusa Pacific University (APU). She was a full time student while simultaneously pursuing her dance career with Inland Pacific Ballet. She graduated with her BA in Economics from APU in 2013.
Directly following graduation, Shelby interned for the No Place Like Home Conference and was then hired on as an Intern for the BIAOC. Moving from Intern to Project Coordinator, Shelby was part-time with the BIAOC from 2013 - 2015.
Shelby pursued a year long career change, but it was clear that the BIA was the place for her. She began her Events & Marketing Manager position in November of 2016 and has been loving it ever since. Shelby feels very lucky to be a part of the BIAOC family.
