“I started cheerleading and gymnastics when I was 5 years old. When I started high school I focused solely on cheer and continued through college. Cheering at Florida State is one of my biggest accomplishments and I made so many amazing memories. My favorite memory is cheering on FSU during the National Championship win in 2014!”
My biggest passion and goal going into this new role is to teach and help athletes of all stages in their cheer careers reach their individual and team goals. I also plan to teach the athletes all of the lifelong lessons, discipline, and perseverance I've learned through out my time cheerleading. I am so excited to begin this journey with the Zone Family!!

Shelby has a strong gymnastics background which led her toward cheerleading in Middle School. She continued to cheer her way through St. Augustine High school and Zone Cheer All-Stars from 2009-the present. Shelby is a well rounded athlete who has won numerous amounts of awards at UCA Camps, All-Star Competitions as a solo performer and was even chosen to cheer at the 2010 Pro Bown in Hawaii. Shelby continues to guide the athletes of tomorrow as she is a positive role model at Zone Cheer and assists in many aspects of coaching in our facility. Shelby's dream is to cheer through college and continue coaching along the way with UCA Staff and Zone Cheer. Shelby was a highly recognized UCA Staff member this past summer and has been asked to return for year 2 to continue her UCA Staff experience.
I have been apart of the Zone family since the first year of the program in 2009. I cheered with Zone from 7th grade through my senior year of high school. In addition to all-star cheerleading, I cheered for Nease High School on their sideline and competition teams my sophomore through senior year. I attended the University of South Florida for my freshman year of college and have moved back home where I have completed my AA and then attend nursing school in Jacksonville. Being an athlete at Zone has taught me lifelong skills that I will appreciate and cherish forever. It has molded me into a strong, confident person that is ready to take on any challenge I am given! I am so happy to be back, as a coach now, at my second home! I can't wait to see what amazing memories are to come.
Former Florida State Cheerleader and Captain.
I was born in Richmond, Virginia and raised in Lake Worth, Florida. I've played a few different competitive sports throughout my life, including football and wrestling. I got involved in competitive cheerleading my senior year of high school. During my first cheerleading practice I was in awe of the two Florida State guys that were there to help out. After that day I was addicted and worked as hard as I could to make the FSU Co-Ed team. I cheered at FSU from 2010-2014. Our coed team cheered for football, basketball, and volleyball. I was lucky enough to also be voted captain by my peers during my final two years on the team. One of my favorite memories from FSU was cheering on the winning Seminoles during the 2013 National Championship game in Pasadena, CA. I graduated in May of 2015 with a double major in Political Science and International Affairs. I currently work for Kloeckner Metals, a metal service center, as a Processing/Sales Assistant.
I started competitive gymnastics at an early age and continued to compete all over the state of Florida until I reached high school. When I was going into my first year of high school, I tried out for the cheerleading team. I was a Varsity cheerleader all 4 years at Ponte Vedra High School where I was involved in competitive cheer as well as sideline cheer. During my sophomore year of high school, our team began have our competition practices at zone. During my senior year, I was selected by my teammates to be the captain of the team. We continued to have practices at zone through my senior year in high school. This is where I fell in love with the program of zone cheer. Halfway through my senior year I began Allstar cheer at zone and continued to compete for zone through my final year as a super senior. I was also the coach of a local, small competitive pop warner team where we took the girls to State to compete in Orlando. I could not be more excited to begin my coaching career at Zone Cheer Allstars. I hope to follow in the footsteps of my role models, Coach Jessica & Coach Melanie and teach young athletes how far hard work and dedication can take one not only in cheerleading but also in one's life.
