Along with being a business woman on a mission, Shay is a wife, mother, sister, grandma, and a Co-Founder of The UpTeam! Originally from Lubbock and then raised in the Central Texas area, Shay and her family reside in the small town of Taylor right outside of Austin. She attended Austin Community College, Kaplan University, and Central Texas College.

With more than 20 years of Human Resources and Staffing experience, Shay says that one of her most rewarding accomplishments is to successfully place a candidate into a position, giving them a life tool. That position can mean different things to different people wherever they are in their life’s journey. It can be a career in which the employee prospers. It can be a means to feed their family. Or it can serve as a way to support their child’s education.

“My ‘why’ is that I believe in simply sharing what I have learned during the last 20 years with others so they can have the same opportunities to build their careers and life,” says Shay. “This way we can continue to bless thousands of people into ‘positions’ globally.”
