On completing high school, she attended the University of San Diego, California where she earned a bachelors degree in Business in 2008.
While studying at the University of San Diego (USD), Shelby was a member of the university’s television network, USDtv as well as the USD’s Alpha Phi sorority, writing the society’s monthly newsletter. In her final year, she interned for four months at NBC where she worked on NBC San Diego website’s video reports.

Is She Married – Who Is The Husband or Boyfriend?
Shelby Holliday’s husband is Jonathan Zwart. The beautiful, 5-feet-9-inches tall journalist dated Jonathan for several years before getting married to him. The pair, however, finally tied the knot on the 30th of August, 2015. The wedding was a private ceremony with only a few relatives and friends in attendance.
Shelby is a reserved personality, especially when it comes to her personal matters. Unlike her professional life, she rarely shares her private issues with the media. There is therefore very little information about her marital and family life. However, her relationship with Jonathan has remained a smooth one (as much as we know), with no rumours of conflict or other marital issues.
Meanwhile, they celebrated their three-year wedding anniversary on 30th August 2018, with Shelby posting a “Happy Anniversary” message across to her husband on Instagram. The two are yet to have a child together.
