Picture this: You’re trying to keep your nerves at bay while on the way to one of the most exciting, appointments of your life, when suddenly you find yourself in gridlock traffic (in Manhattan, no less). That pretty accurately describes the day of Shelby’s open-casting callback for her Good Squad audition—she ended up ditching her Uber and running to meet us in the nick of time. All we can say is hallelujah, as the crew just wouldn’t feel complete without this fun-loving, soulful nurse. Her occupation is one of her biggest accomplishments, and something she rightfully takes a lot of pride in. Despite dedicating so much empathy and care onto others (namely, her patients), it has been a journey for Shelby to embrace her own sense of self-love, and she wants to use her platform to connect with and inspire others who may be going through something similar. The more we all can champion that authentic sense of self-acceptance in others, the better off we’ll be—and Shelby’s down for the cause.

I’m just trying to be who I needed when I was younger. I didn’t have someone of shapely stature to look up to, to tell me it’s okay to look the way you do and love it.

For so long women didn’t feel like they fit in because they weren’t being represented online, in magazines or in stores. Now that we are being represented in all shapes and sizes, I think that it’s truly amazing.
