40 Questions With: Shelby Meyers, Senior Account Executive

As part of our 40 Questions series I was happy to pull our newest B&O addition, SAE Shelby Meyers, out of the office to one of her favorite spots in the city – Washington Square Park – to drill her with random questions and get to know her a little better. She was an awesome sport and totally humored me even with my most ridiculous questions. When she’s not learning how to speak Italian and cook Sicilian food, Shelby loves to urban hike, explore the redwoods, eat her way through SF and read in all the parks. If you run into Shelby, be sure to ask her to talk about photography (it’s how she landed her first PR job!), do her Red Rum kid impression (I can attest it’s quite good), do a magic trick or play an instrument – she knows the clarinet, bass guitar and the bongos. I’m totally impressed. She’s also in the process of planning a wedding and currently contemplating a first dance song, so be sure to throw some recommendations her way.
