Shellie became a registered nurse a little later in life than most. Prior to her nursing career, she was the Research Administration Coordinator at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico. After her daughter went to college, she was able to fulfill her longtime dream of becoming a nurse. She graduated through the accelerated RN program in just 14 months.
She began nursing in the hospital setting but gravitated toward nursing administration and eventually managed 8 specialty practices for a multi-practice medical group. As she progressed, she came to have a passion for elder care and geriatric nursing. She has worked in management of Adult Care Facilities and is delighted to join The Chelsea at Greenburgh.
