Shelley is an excellent patient advocate. She is always willing to go the extra mile to help her patients heal and progress. She often will take patients up to the roof for fresh air during long and difficult admissions. She pursues quality of life measures for those who can’t advocate for themselves. She has made strong connections with patients who are very difficult to reach. She never gives up on a patient no matter the odds or what is at stake. She displays a fierce persistence that never relents. She never lets the stress of the job impact her performance. As fiercely as she fights for her patients she also fights for her co-workers. Above all, she is consistent, dependable and can always be trusted to do more than is expected to fight for health and to fight for a smile.
