Shelley is a daughter, granddaughter, sister, best friend, wife, and momma to 3 children Amelia, Elisabeth and Charles. Washington has been her home most of her life with a few short stints to the east coast. Although the Pacific Northwest is her birthplace, she now calls the Inland
Northwest her home. Shelley has dedicated her career to women’s health. From doula, to labor and delivery nurse, to nurse-midwife and currently healthcare leadership at MultiCare Valley Hospital. Women and babies are her thing! She derives joy from quiet alone time, acquiring the perfect
outfit, and sharing food and drink with her closest friends/family. Shelley began writing last summer as a way to process her life experiences raising a daughter with special needs. However, she quickly learned her own unique ways of self-expression through carefully chosen words deeply touched others in ways she hadn’t yet imagined possible. Because of this, she continued writing and sharing, leading her to this moment today.
