In 2018, she played a single episode in the television adaptation of ‘School of Rock’, and later that year played the recurring role of Natalie in season two of the Disney Channel series ‘Andi Mack’ – the comedy-drama created by Terri Minsky aired from April 7, 2017 to July 26, 2019, and starred Sofia Wylie, Peyton Elizabeth Lee, Lilan Bowden, Trent Garrett, Joshua Rush, Lauren Tom, and Asher Angel.

The comedy series premiered on July 31, 2015, is created by Pamela Eells O’Connell and is a spin-off of another Disney show, “Jessie”, and even starred Karan Brar, Skai Jackson and Peyton List, who were part of the main cast in ‘Jessie’. The plot follows Ravi, Zuri and Emma as they leave New York City to spend their summer in Moose Rump, Maine, at Camp Kikiwaka – the camp where their parents met when they were teenagers. Jedediah Swearengen founded the camp and named it after a legendary Bigfoot-type creature, said to live in the nearby forest. The camp is known for still operating even though they violate multiple safety regulations and health codes. The fifth season of the series was confirmed in February 2020.

In 2020, Shelby was cast as a lead actor alongside James Denton in the feature film “Selfie Dad”.

Private life

Shelby enjoys sports and is on a championship softball team.

She also loves animals and has two pets of her own, a white rabbit named Luenell and a dog named Daisy.

She was rumored to be in a relationship with ‘Henry Danger’ lead actor Jace Norman after the pair attended the Kid’s Choice Awards together in March 2019. She walked the orange carpet with him, they posed for pictures and looked very happy out.

He won the award for Favorite TV Actor and appeared to be holding hands with Shelby before standing up to collect his award. They haven’t officially announced their relationship, but Jace did post a photo of Shelby on his Instagram account, along with other photos from the night. He later posted a selfie with her with the caption, “One last one,” along with a red heart emoji with a sideways smiley face.

Shelby also posted photos from the event, writing the caption, “Had a blast at the Kids Choice Awards! The slime was legit. Thank you, @jacenorman, for inviting me, and thank you @saniyyasidney @amconstance for being with me! I love you.’

They both continued to post pictures together suggesting they are in a relationship – Shelby posted a picture that resembled a romantic getaway in Santa Monica.

If the two were an item, it looks like they broke up. Jace’s last photo with Shelby was posted in May 2019 and she has since deleted all photos of or with him on Instagram.
