Shelbi White

Founders of Athlete StandUp LLC

 Shelbi is a vibrant, tenacious DIVA, and passionate about helping parents, coaches, and teammates support the mental health needs of athletes competing across all performance levels! The vision of launching her private practice, Athlete Stand UP, was birthed in 2020 after her heart cried out for the loss of a 15-year-old teen, JoVianni Smith, who lost her life to suicide after struggling to cope with being isolated from her sport during the Covid pandemic. It was how her heart cried out for the loss of such a beautiful young black fellow DIVA, who was mentally tormented and robbed of such a bright future ahead of herself, which awakened clarity to the purpose God has assigned over my life. Leveraging her former collegiate and professional athletic experiences, she formed her company Athlete Stand UP, to advocate and holistically educate the athletic community to find high value by identifying, understanding, and supporting the mental health needs of athletes competing at the youth, high school, collegiate, and professional levels.
