The Wyoming Owned and Operated Hotel company Timberline Hospitalities announced and welcomed Shelby Watson as their Sales & Administrator Assistant.

departments within the company.


A true Wyomingite, Shelby Watson’s biggest inspiration is her family! Having grown up in Fremont County watching them all work hard and overcome challenges has instilled many of her own morals she lives by today. When Shelby isn’t working, she loves spending time with her close family and friends, “I enjoy everything outdoors and you can usually find me up in the mountains or

out at the lake.”


Watson comes to Timberline with the goal to graduate with her Bachelors in Communications and Minor in Marketing from the University of Wyoming within the next year. All of Shelby’s references agreed that she is the most dependable, dedicated and trustworthy employee they have had the pleasure to work with. Her biggest excitement for working at Timberline are the endless opportunities to grow and their Mission of Making Friends One Guest at a Time. “I love what this company stands for and I can’t wait to face new challenges,” said Shelby.
Shelby lives in Casper with her boyfriend and lately they have enjoyed being new homeowners and creating lists of endless projects for their new home. Watson is very excited about the opportunity to use her degree knowledge and grow within the hospitality industry and Timberline Hospitalities. Shelby’s energetic, compassionate and driven attitude will make her a great asset to

the Timberline Family.
