Born and raised in Montana, Shelly earned her Bachelors' degree in Accounting and Finance from the University of Montana. Her move to San Diego 15 years ago helped Shelly transition from her career as a CPA with a public accounting firm to a CFO position with a commercial development company where she also worked in property management. For a time, Shelly owned a small business, running several kiosks for cell phone accessories.
Enjoying the educational and client advocacy side of each of her previous roles, she decided to change her focus to residential sales where for the past several years she has found great success and satisfaction. Shelly's passion for helping others extends outside her chosen career in real estate and into her personal life. Shelly founded Adobe Bluffs Educational Foundation to help a local elementary school raise money for mobile laptops for their classrooms. She is also a breast cancer survivor and has been an incredible resource, stalwart advocate and compassionate supporter to several of her friends who have been recently diagnosed.
