Shelbe Shand

Key Roles


I'm Shelbe Shand. I am the Family School Wellness Worker at Poplar Ridge Elementary School and CP Blakely School. I am so excited to get to know all the wonderful kids and families and start building meaningful relationships. I have a degree in Community Rehabilitation and Disability Studies from the University of Calgary as well as a diploma to work as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. I also have a post-graduate certificate in Human Sexuality from the University of Alberta. I am currently pursuing my Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I am a lover of learning and am not sure I’ll ever stop pursuing more knowledge and skills! I have been working with children and families in a professional manner since 2012. 3 of those years were spent as a Family School Liaison Counsellor working in two elementary schools in Edson, AB. I am passionate about empowering children and families to be the best that they can be. I believe that everyone has the power and ability to thrive and I am hoping to help families develop the skills and tools necessary to do so. 

I love running and hiking and try to spend most of my spare time in the mountains. I also have a little dog Finn who has quite the funny personality and loves to cuddle. Be sure to stop by to say hi!
