Shelly was born in Raleigh, but was sadly forced to leave at the age of four. Don’t fret, she came back to the beautiful state of North Carolina from Vermont to attend NC State in 2005 and graduated with a BS in Nutrition in 2009. She absolutely loves the Wolfpack (!!), as well as her church, running (of course!), coloring pictures, climbing trees, playing guitar and singing. She completed her first marathon in Burlington, VT (with her amazing mom right by her side) over Memorial Day weekend 2011 and is working to shave down her time to qualify for Boston!
