Biography

Childhood - Born and raised in New Orleans, her family and faith instilled in her the values of honesty, commitment, and leadership at a young age. She was raised in a Catholic home and church with most of the New Orleans traditions revolving around their faith. After graduating from LSU with a BA in Criminal Justice, Shelly then moved to Atlanta and met her husband. In 2000, she graduated from UGA with a Masters in Social Work — the same year that she and her husband also welcomed their first child.

Leadership - Shelly began her lifelong career in social services and child welfare by working for Fulton County DFCS. But in 2002, Shelly founded The Social Empowerment Center, a mental health and social services outreach and treatment center in Lawrenceville. After being recognized by the Bulldog 100, as the #1 fastest growing businesses owned or operated by UGA Alumni in 2014, Shelly also landed a job as a part time professor at the UGA School of Social Work.

Community Involvement - As the chairperson of the Local Interagency Planning Team and the Children In Need of Services Committee, Shelly assists local leaders in providing access to unconventional services for children in need of behavioral health services. She also belongs to numerous professional organizations such as Together Georgia, The National Association of Social Workers, and The Georgia Society for Clinical Social Work. She is active in alumni organizations and is a current member of the UGA alumni Board.

Family & Faith - As a eucharistic minister, lector, and volunteer, Shelly has maintained those traditional Catholic roots in Gwinnett County along with her family. Her children have been altar servers since they were in Elementary School. Shelly is proud her childrens’ academic successes can be attributed to the Gwinnett County Public Schools. They currently both attend Brookwood High School.

Priorities

in.vest
I vow to put partisans aside to create legislation that allows our neighborhoods and businesses to thrive. Investing in our community means more jobs where we need them. But we also need better transit to get to our families those good jobs. I will push for a comprehensive transit plan would attract more businesses, even more transplants, and increase tax dollars. Those tax dollars will then be invested in our community to increase education budgets, increase mental health budgets, and decrease our carbon footprint.

in.volve

We need legislation that is compassionate to all sectors of our communities so that it takes care of all. Currently, wealthy companies flourish while families covered by Medicaid continuously receive fewer and fewer covered services. Our schools need reform that supports a student and teacher friendly environment instead of test friendly environment. As your next State Representative, I am committed to legislation involving our youth, our senior citizens, and our marginalized communities.

in.form

I will continue my career in education by informing our communities of all upcoming legislation. I will stand for nothing short of transparent, ethical, and honest legislation that supports collaborative partnerships between citizens, businesses, and our government.

in.clude

Zip codes should not determine your success or your access to community resources or quality education. I will make it my mission to fight for equal rights, for safety, for livability, for representation, for all Georgians. As your next State Representative, we will all have a seat at the table. We are all in.
