Shelly came to Southeast Alaska by way of Tennessee five years ago. What started as a seasonal job quickly turned into a full time life in Ketchikan, Alaska. Since then she has built a strong sense of community in Southeast. She spent the last two years working for the Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce as the small business advisor. She enjoys bringing people together and fostering connections to help her community thrive. Shelly enjoys volunteering with Ketchikan Search and Rescue, First City Players Community Theatre, and more. When she isn’t working or volunteering you can find her attempting to train her new dog Blueberry, and exploring Alaska by land and sea.
