Shellie is married and has two wonderful children, Jimmie and Paige. Shellie has been with CALO for over 8 years and had the privilege of being one of CALO’s first employees. Shellie is currently pursuing her Master’s of Social Work with the University of New England in Biddeford, ME. During her time at CALO, Shellie has had many accomplishments, such as completing her B.A. in Human Services, being promoted to management positions in the residential department, being awarded Coach of the Year, and honored for over 5 years of service. Shellie has found a home as the Utilization Review Coordinator helping families find funding for placement at Calo. This drive for helping others began approximately 10 years ago when she took one of her first jobs with the State of Missouri, Crime Victims’ Compensation Unit as a Caseworker. There, Shellie was able to help those in need and serve those struggling with social justice. Serving this specific population helped develop and fine tune Shellie’s passion for social work and drive to eliminate social injustice, which continues today. This passion and compassion for others is what drew her to CALO and helping adolescents and families in need.
