Shepherd, a four-year Gopher letterwinner, recently graduated from the Carlson School of Management with a double major of accounting and finance. She finished her collegiate career with a stroke average of 77.49, the third-lowest in program history. 

Also a multiple Academic All-Big Ten honoree, Shepherd played in 39 career tournaments as a Golden Gopher .
