Shelly is the daughter of a veteran Air Force physician, granddaughter of an Army veteran and cousin to a Marine Corps veteran, and brings with her a heart for patriotism and passion for showing gratitude and support to our military community to her new role as Boot Campaign CEO. Like her dad, who played football at Ole Miss, Shelly honed her tenacity instincts and teamwork skills as an athlete, fiercely competing in lacrosse, basketball and cheerleading in high school before moving on to Vanderbilt University. Before her move to Texas, Shelly tracked fugitives across the country and around the world as a producer for America’s Most Wanted. She worked hand in hand with law enforcement to bring justice to families and solve missing kid cases in collaboration with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Prior to getting her BOOTS ON, Shelly wore many hats at the Center for BrainHealth and Brain Performance Institute in Dallas, Texas, a major partner in Boot Campaign’s flagship veteran treatment program – ReBOOT. For the past seven years, Shelly has been responsible the Center’s advocacy, strategic alliances and oversight of public awareness campaigns, media relations, marketing and branding as its public relations director. We are beyond honored and blessed to have Shelly at the helm of the Boot Campaign mission!
