President & CEO
Shelly has led the Wichita Foundation since 2012, deepening WF's community impact through the stewardship of more than $96 million in charitable community assets. She collaborates with staff, Board and community leaders to achieve a shared vision of building a better Wichita.
She grew up on a farm outside of Newton, Kansas, where she learned the value of community at a young age. When Shelly's not serving at St. Thomas Aquinas or cheering on the Wildcats, she enjoys cooking, reading and spending time with her husband and rescue dog. Her active board service includes the Greater Wichita Partnership, The Wichita Beacon and the Wichita Estate Planning Council.
