Rocking it since: 2018
Have you ever stood onstage, singing solo in front of a few hundred people? Palms sweating, heart racing, voice carrying across the auditorium, Shope has stared down stage fright and survived triumphant to standing ovations time and again. Her family describes her as their fearless little songbird. To the rest of the world she’s just Shope, now an occasional karaoke rockstar. She’s the first in her family to attend college, earning an Associate of Applied Science in Business Management from Columbus State Community College. Working with Artina, Shope enjoys that she’s able to employ her training and tenacity to assist her team and the company by rolling up her sleeves and getting the job done, whatever it may be in that moment. She’s not afraid of any project, big or small. Her favorite part of the job, as with every aspect of her life, is putting a smile on everyone’s face. In her free time, when not rocking out onstage, Shope serves on the Emerging Leaders Board for the Make-A-Wish foundation, and volunteers for local community organizations like Community Festival. She also enjoys creating custom crochet items, and spending time with her three rescue kitties, Sammy, Cyonna, and Killian.
