Her list of goals never ends and she hopes that it never does as she continues to accomplish everything she wants.

Web Editor

Shelby Baertl

Shelby Baertl is a third-year Creative Writing student at KPU. In her free time, she likes to pick up new hobbies, instead of going back to the 87 other ones she was obsessed with for a week before getting distracted. The one thing that has been (somewhat) consistent is writing. She is currently developing a new novel idea (maybe she’ll actually follow through with this one) and hopes to one day turn her writing into a career. In the meantime, she gets paid to destroy mattresses.
