Shelly is from the southwest suburbs of Chicago, and grew up in Westmont, IL. She attended Illinois State University where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Apparel Merchandising and Business Administration. While still in school, she accepted an internship with Nordstrom and upon graduation, was offered a position as Manager of Women's & Salon Shoes. Shelly’s career path at Nordstrom was on a fast-track, and for over 5 years she managed several departments within the Shoe & Cosmetic divisions throughout Chicagoland.
As she honed her business acumen, Shelly was interested in exploring the world of small business. Shelly's love of high-end fashion and her entrepreneurial spirit led her to accepting a position at Daniel George. As our Business Manager, Shelly was eager to explore business development at a small company and capitalize on its already-successful business model, while utilizing her refined approach to excellent customer service.
When she’s not holed up in her office at DG, Shelly loves to travel, explore Chicago, and try new restaurants. She admits to binge-watching Law & Order SVU and YouTube makeup tutorials in her spare time.
