Shelley was born a Texan and lived the first few years of her life in the U.S. before moving to India for a decade. She grew up in the metropolitan city of Bangalore and moved back to Texas as a teenager during her high school years. Having experienced the best of the east and the west, Shelley developed a keen interest in the sociological and cultural aspects of business, which later led her to pursue a degree in this field.
Shelley currently owns and runs Shelley K. Events, an event management company based in Dallas, Texas. Having started as a wedding planning business in 2009, Shelley’s passion for serving the community and giving back compelled her to expand her client base to include non-profit organizations and corporations with strong social responsibility causes. She expanded her services and launched her new brand in July 2013.
Fighting some very personal battles at a young age has given Shelley a passion for encouraging, motivating and empowering others to embrace second chances, break away from convention and pursue their dreams. Her entrepreneurial spirit continues to thrive as she is making plans to start her own non-profit one day. Shelley holds a degree in Markets & Culture with a concentration in Business from Southern Methodist University, and resides in Dallas, Texas.
