Hi, I’m Shelley!

A student affairs professional for twenty years, I'm committed to providing high-quality programs and services, customized for students and the people who support them. If you believe that we can make higher education better for everyone -- students, staff, and faculty -- by taking some chances and adopting new perspectives, let's talk.


I'm also the author of Prepare for Departure: A Guide to Making the Most of Your Study Abroad Experience, which you can find on Amazon. For orders of more than 5 books, contact me for bulk pricing.
