When I was an intern at NBC's San Diego affiliate, an anchor there gave me two pieces of advice: start smoking to lower my voice (a joke?), and buy shelbyholliday.com before someone else did. I opted to skip the cigarettes, but I'm glad I took the domain tip seriously. So here we are.
As a WSJ reporter, I cover news, politics and investigations. I was fortunate to be part of a team that won the Pulitzer Prize for uncovering hush-money payments connected to President Trump during the 2016 campaign. I've also reported extensively on the coronavirus pandemic, elections, high-profile legal cases and foreign interference in U.S. politics.
Prior to joining the Journal, I was a reporter for Bloomberg TV and an anchor for the CBS-partnered "Channel One News," where I covered a broad range of topics and filed reports from China, Myanmar, Rwanda, Kenya, South Africa, the Philippines, Mexico, England and Guantanamo Bay,
Some of my favorite stories include bungee-jumping with Army troops for a PTSD-screening program, flying alongside young scientists in NASA's zero gravity plane and covering the funeral of Nelson Mandela in South Africa. I've also enjoyed interviewing celebrities and athletes like Pharrell, Lil Wayne, Jack Nicklaus and Charles Barkley.
When I'm not working, I try to spend as much time as possible with my husband and daughters. I'm originally from Denver and graduated with a business degree from the University of San Diego.
