About

First off, thanks for stopping by!

My name is Shelly, and I’m a 36 40 year old Chicago native living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

Some things about me:

  • I’m a vegetarian that often cooks vegan at home.
  • I vote with my wallet at the grocery store – organic and non-GMO ftw.
  • I love animals.
  • I hug trees.
  • I watch birds.
  • I’ve gained and lost a hundred pounds, twice. Lifelong struggle.
  • I love tracking and logging things… food, stats, PRs, etc. And making lists.
  • I teach web and graphic design at JMU.
  • I play Ultima Online.
  • I have seen 50 Dave Matthews Band shows (and counting).
  • I dye my hair strange colors sometimes.
  • I have tattoos. 10 if you count all of my birdies as 1, 15 if you count them individually.

 

Here I am with some of my owl friends from the Wildlife Center of Virginia, where I volunteer in Outreach:

Me and Athena the Barred Owl
