Shel­ley and fam­ily lived in Beach­wood and Cha­grin Falls, OH. for many years, dur­ing which time she was an ac­tive mem­ber of the Cha­grin Falls civic and busi­ness com­mu­ni­ties. In 1987 while ex­plor­ing the western US, she fell in love with Taos which soon be­came her new home. With her sig­na­ture bal­ance of grit and heart, Shel­ley be­came an in­te­gral part of the fab­ric of the Taos com­mu­nity. She launched and grew her own busi­ness in ad­ver­tis­ing spe­cial­ties, Pro­forma/Al­brecht & Co., and be­came a pas­sion­ate sup­porter for many civic and char­i­ta­ble causes, in­clud­ing the Tierra Del Sol chap­ter of the Amer­i­can Na­tional Red Cross where she served as a mem­ber of the Board of Di­rec­tors.
