Amy Shackelford, Founder / Lead Planner
Amy Shackelford is a spunky middle child originally from Orlando, Florida. In 2015, she started Modern Rebel with the belief that it was possible to “keep the pretty in perspective.” Through Modern Rebel’s events, she is proud to partner with four local NYC non-profits and give 5% of MR’s profits directly to their programming. She enjoys funky-authentic-totally-awesome love stories, a chocolate chip post-wedding midnight snack, and Shania Twain dance parties at all hours. Most weekends, you’ll find her swooning over the modern couple at one of Modern Rebel’s love-parties or planning ticketed community events with the coolest creatives in New York. She currently lives in Crown Heights, Brooklyn with her partner, John.
