Shelley Ibarra

- Project Manager -

Meet our always-there-for-you-in-a-pinch girl — beaming smile, bright mind, big future.

Tigermoth snagged Shelley as an intern through the Action Greensboro Fellows program, and right away, we could tell how incredibly talented and reliable she is. Shelley is now a full-fledged member of the team, and has made a significant impact in our day-to-day. She’s always ready for a new challenge, and turns assignments so quickly she’ll give you whiplash!

So, what lies beneath the sweet, shy exterior and that Keira Knightley smile? Getting to know Shelley has been like peeling an onion — she surprises us every day. She’s quiet and unassuming, and chances are her quiet and coy disposition may have you fooled.

But then you realize what a careful observer she is, always watching, taking everything in, and offering up astute observations at just the right moment — which means we get to learn from her as much as she learns from us.

Shelley also has a wicked sense of humor; she’s that person who drops the perfect, well-timed line when you’re least expecting it. That works well for us because being a part of the Tigermoth family is about razzing one another like brothers and sisters. Shelley’s our sassy and sarcastic, witty and bright little sis. She’s amazingly patient (not a whole lot of that around the office), uber talented and she beams with positivity.

When Shelley realizes her full potential, watch out. Until then, we’re thrilled that she calls Tigermoth home, right down to the Bluetooth playlists she’s come to embrace. Tigermoth is a fun and special place to work, and Shelley only makes it more so.
