Office Manager | Project Administrator
Shelley joined Sustainably Built the summer of 2017 after spending 20 years in the legal field. Though the sustainability world was new to her, we managed to switch her over from the “dark side” fairly quickly. She was new to the Boulder area and continues to be amazed at how important Boulder County residents consider the “green” industry to be.
Shelley has over 30 years of administrative management and bookkeeping so she’s the one to call for any questions regarding invoicing and day-to-day project management.
