Owner, Chief Executive Officer

In her 28-year career, Shelli’s done it all and then some—delivering hundreds of technology marketing campaigns, building a profitable business, expanding the client base from regional to international, and leading a stellar team of senior consultants—and she does it with tremendous focus and gusto. At any given time, you can find her articulating a new company vision, finding solutions and seizing opportunities for clients, or combining problem-solving savvy with deep technical knowledge and strong execution.

She brings the same drive and passion to her volunteering, where she’s played a leadership role in fighting poverty by helping low-income adults with barriers to employment achieve financial self-sufficiency. She is the former Chairman of the Board of Dress for Success Southern Nevada, where she supervised and controlled the  organization. Dress for Success promotes the economic independence of disadvantaged women by providing professional attire, career programs, and a network of support. In the Bay Area, Shelli is also the past Chairman of the Board for The Stride Center. Stride is one of the East Bay’s most effective workforce development organizations, training and placing the disadvantaged in vibrant, well paying, upwardly mobile careers in the technology field.
