Shelley is the President of Corbin Design and has been part of the team for over 19 years. She was named an Associate in December 2002, Vice President of Marketing in February 2010, and President in June 2016. She is responsible for the vision and direction of Corbin Design, and the internal leadership and management of the staff. Shelley also oversees Corbin Design’s business development and marketing. Her favorite part of her job is meeting new potential clients and helping to identify their wayfinding needs so our team can solve them. 

Shelley is an active member of the International Downtown Association (IDA), Society for College and University Planning (SCUP), and Society for Healthcare Marketing and Strategy Development (SHSMD).

Originally from Interlochen (just outside of Traverse City), Shelley loves all of the water and trails in northern Michigan and the small-town feel the area offers. Shelley graduated Magna Cum Laude from Central Michigan University with a business administration degree, a major in marketing, and a minor in advertising. Before joining Corbin Design, Shelley spent over a year as marketing director for a website design and development company—managing the firm’s advertising plan, selling e-commerce services, designing sales materials, and developing press releases and promotions. She also spent more than four years providing marketing and support services for a publishers’ distribution service—consulting with clients, negotiating contracts with publishers, and supervising the design and production of company catalogs.

Shelley enjoys meeting new people and spending quality time with family and friends. Outside the office, she can often be found boating, golfing, hiking, snowshoeing, cooking, volunteering, or playing with her energetic Boxer pup named Jersey and lackadaisical Great Dane named Sinder.
