Why did you join the Junior League?

Once I left public accounting, I was no longer traveling every week for work and had more free time available.  I made a conscious decision that I wanted to use my free time to give back to the community. As we all know JLO is an amazing organization, committed to promoting voluntarism.  It was a perfect fit.

What do you see as one of the biggest turning points in your life?Marsh_Shelly photos (2)

Meeting my husband, Casey.  Life. Changing. Moment.  There are no words I could write to adequately explain how remarkable he is. Without him, I would not be able to put in the hours I do at the office and volunteer the amount I do, while having two small children at home.  He is truly my life partner.
