Major Gifts Officer

Over the years, Shelley’s passion for social justice and building community has fueled her career, from most recently connecting champions of equality to Equality California's advocacy work as their Major Gift Officer, to serving the Los Angeles community, especially those living with HIV, as a trusted Medicare and Insurance Broker, to managing operations at Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco (a home for queer spirituality), to transforming anti-Semitism in textbooks through outreach and fundraising with the Jewish Community Relations Council. In her spare time, Shelley can be found hiking, writing and serving as a community leader for the international peace organization, SGI. Previously you may have seen her perform as a vocalist touring with 1940’s Big Bands or heating up a night club with her jazz trio. She currently lives in Mid-City with her wife of over a decade and their Chiweenie.
