Shelly is a spirited character with a long history of jumping into adventures whenever she can. In addition to being a pioneer in the ice fishing industry, she also raced jet skis. Recently arning her captain’s license, Shelly hopes to someday be a charter captain for pleasure cruises near the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior. As if that isn’t enough, she also owns a food truck in the Minneapolis, St Paul area. Her customers wait for her bubbly personality to show up each day.

In addition to seeking adventure, Shelly enjoys spending time with her Grandchild. Also, as part of the Women Ice Angler Project she will make several appearances across the Ice Belt.
