Born and raised in Spokane,
    WA, Shelly grew up enjoying summers at Loon Lake. After graduating from West
    Valley high school, Shelly played basketball at Spokane Falls Community College
    and then transferred to Eastern Washington University. It was there she earned
    her 
    B.S in Business Management in
    1997 and a B.S in Secondary Education in 1999, and ultimately her Master¿s in
    Education in 2009.

    During college, summer-time
    was spent working at a fishing lodge in Sitka, Alaska. Long hours and hard work
    defined this time. It was there she met her husband, Chris, and then together,
    they continued working each for the next 16 years.
     

    Shelly has spent the past 20
    years in education, teaching everything from traditional high school, online,
    alternative, and adult education. Her specialty has always been her ability to
    connect with her students and establish rapport with them while modifying her
    teaching to meet the needs of each individual.
     

    Solution oriented and
    friendly, Shelly¿s experience working with many personalities has given her the
    ability to think on her feet and work with others to accomplish their goals.
    Her attention to detail and organization ensure that things get done in a
    timely and predictable fashion. No one better than her realizes the
    disappointment of an unfortunate situation that could have been avoided with
    some foresight and preparedness.

    Shelly and her husband have
    seven children. Their family has grown through adoption (international) and
    foster care. This process has taught them all patience, understanding, and
    acceptance. Her passion for children from under developed countries sprang from
    the experiences she had while adopting two children from Ethiopia. She is
    fortunate to be a part of a non-profit whose goal is family preservation
    through education and maternal care.  In 2015, they returned from living
    in Ethiopia for two years where they volunteered at a school in Addis Ababa.

    Shelly has been fortunate to
    have so many interesting experiences in her life, mom, educator, Alaskan
    adventurer, African missionary, home renovator, etc. All have greatly prepared
    her with the ability to overcome obstacles, have amazing forethought, and
    accomplish what she sets out to do.
