Special Advisor to the President
Shelly was born and raised in the small town of Waycross, Georgia. Following high school she attended East Tennessee State University in Johnson City where she earned BS degrees in Elementary Education and Child Psychology. It was there she met and married Erol, her husband of 28 years. The two made Austin home in 1995 when Erol joined Texas Heart and Vascular.
Mother to three, 23-year-old Anna-Blaire, a civil engineer practicing in Dallas, and twin 20-year-old Razorbacks, Liam and Collins, life in Austin has been busy. This stay at home mom spent most of her spare time serving the community. Having held every position from MOPS Chair to Gala chair to President, Shelly was named TCMA’s Volunteer of the year in 2000.
In addition to volunteer work, this new “empty nester” spends her time reading, embroidering, waterskiing, traveling, entertaining friends, and dating her husband.
