Shelby Balentine’s Family
Shelby Nicole Balentine was born on January 29, 1996, and is a native of Huntsville, Alabama. She is one of two children born to Kathy Balentine and Tim Balentine.

Shelby Balentine’s Education and Career
After graduating from Sparkman High School in 2014, Shelby Balentine attended the University of Alabama. Aspiring to work in the media industry, the Mary and E. Ray Ritch Endowed Scholarship Recipient interned at Tuscaloosa’s WVUA 93 and ESPN. She also worked at the campus publication.
Balentine earned a BA in Journalism and Creative Media in 2018 and hoped to find a job in Nashville’s media scene. But her work experience since college has primarily been in the fashion business.
She worked with Lululemon and handled sales at Crown Media Family Networks. Since 2020, she’s been using her media expertise to promote her fashion brand.
Shelby Balentine and Carmen MacKay have been friends since they were teens and dancers. They remained in touch even after going to different colleges. A discussion about trend-forward, cost-effective work clothing led the longtime friends to launch CEO Clothing, an online boutique for fashionable and affordable work wear.
They launched the business in September 2020 with their fair share of struggles due to the pandemic. As the CEO of CEO Clothing, Balentine is responsible for trend forecasting, placing orders with vendors, social media marketing, and maintaining the online store.
Balentine and MacKay quickly adapted their collections to trend changes, too. Knowing that workwear shopping was low during the pandemic, they curated work-from-home collections with cozy and “Zoom-approved” loungewear.
