Shelley was born in Seattle, WA and grew up enjoying the beautiful waters and magnificent mountains around the Puget Sound. She attended Whitworth College and earned a degree in history. After a couple of other moves and the start of a new family in Idaho and Utah, Shelley joined Junior Achievement as a program manager and special events manager. Her favorite part of the job was promoting financial literacy in classrooms K-12. Realizing that she loved teaching business concepts to students and working closely with financial service companies, Shelley decided to go back to school and study accounting.
Joining MOR in 2019 as an accountant and facility rental manager has been a happy mix between her love for history, working with staff to meet their accounting needs, and helping customers find event spaces for their special days.
Shelley enjoys the outdoors walking many of the local trails around Gallatin County, floating down the beautiful fly-fishing rivers in Montana, and creating furniture makeovers.
