My name is Shelby Huff and I am a professional writer focusing on health, nature and travel topics. With a background as a park ranger and wildlife guide, I know how to craft a story in a compelling way that appeals to a diverse audience.
For a long time my job was a bear guide. I followed bears around North America, spending my off seasons (bears sleep half the year) sailing the Caribbean, biking solo around Tasmania and New Zealand, and backpacking South America. I was captivated by potential stories, connecting with people from different backgrounds, always writing on the side until I realized all I was after was a good story. I now call my native Pacific Northwest home and work as a Trip Specialist, programming guided trips around the world for a major outdoor company.
I have a demonstrated history in the writing and editing industry; as a content writer for Matador Network, a features writer and copy editor for the award winning Jackson Hole News&Guide and have been featured in Adventure Journal, Alaska Magazine, Intrepid, and the Yakima Valley Business Magazine. I also serve as a travel consultant for the REI Co-Op Journal and REI Expert Advice.
