Shelby spends many hours thinking of ways to deliver Schwerdt Design Group's message and work to the public. She has worked in marketing for several years including 11 plus years for a global conservation group where she developed an appreciation for Kansas prairies and wetlands. As the Communications and Client Development Manager, Shelby manages SDG's social media presence, website, promotional and advertising initiatives, proposals and a myriad of other tasks that get swept under the marketing rug. After college (at Washburn University), Shelby made Topeka her permanent home and loves to see the strides the city has made in developing more opportunities for young professionals and revitalization of downtown. She sees her role as communications manager as helping enhance and champion the work SDG does as both designers and good citizens of Topeka.
I'll have to cheat and say two things - my coworkers and the fact that SDG has such a community-minded philosophy. Their attitude toward community building makes a great difference in a place I've long called home. Taken together both elements makes SDG a great place to work.
Don't be so dramatic. It's not the end of the world.
Again, there's never just one...music and good storytelling - in any format.
I was a company member of a summer stock theater group during my young and free wheelin' days.
Laughing and doing goofy things with my family and friends. Nothing better.
Funny enough an interior designer. I love to decorate my house.
