SHELLEY GUINN

SENIOR LIVING COUNSELOR

Shelley has 25 years of experience as a wholesale manufacturer’s representative in the apparel and shoe industry. She followed one of her passions and entered the world of cheerleading apparel/uniform sales. As a territory sales manager, she also coordinated cheerleading and dance competitions. After several years in the cheer industry, Shelley transitioned to the Family Services Department of Service Corporation International – Laurel Land Fort Worth. She entered this industry remembering how difficult it was to plan her own mother’s funeral, and saw it as an opportunity to help families during one of the worst times of their lives. At Laurel Land, Shelley helped facilitate the LIFT program, a monthly social event for widows and widowers who have lost their partners. Realizing how much joy she felt helping seniors, she left Laurel Land and joined Stevenson Oaks as a senior living counselor.

Shelley has lived in Fort Worth for 22 years and attended the University of North Texas. When she’s not busy working, Shelley loves traveling, dancing, spending time with her family and friends, and spoiling her beautiful black Labrador Retriever, Livi.
