Like many of us that grew up on farms, Shelly has a huge range of skills and has had a number of careers. In her now long running career as a building designer. In Australia architect has a specific meaning, but in the USA we would probably call her an architect.

When her grandson was diagnosed with autism Shelly jumped in to learn all she could about it and how to apply her skill as a building designer to create better spaces for the autistic and others of the neurodiverse bend. As the recipient of a Churchill Fellowship Shelly was able to travel the world to learn what is being done in other countries to create living spaces for the autistic. This has given her an amazing understanding of the various approached and techniques used to create just the right environment for comfort and usability.
