Shelby Kuhl, Program Coordinator, joined the team in August, 2021. Shelby discovered Girls on the Run as a member of the Gamma Phi Beta sorority in college. She served as a running buddy at the 5K and loved the positive atmosphere. As someone who found empowerment through running, GOTR was something Shelby felt strongly that she wanted to share with young girls. When Shelby returned to the St. Louis area, she served as a GOTR-STL coach during the Spring 2020 season, moving forward together with us!
Shelby grew up in O'Fallon, MO, receiving her undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education from Missouri State University, followed by teaching in Bolivar, Missouri before returning to the St. Louis area. She is currently workiing on a graduate degree in Early Childhood and Family Development at MSU. Shelby has a passion for providing developmentally appropriate practices within all school settings and connecting all children with opportunities for safe play.
Shelby lives in Breese, Illinois with with her husband, Austin, and their dog, Dixie - a "potcake" rescue from the Dominican Republic.
