Shelly began working at North Ogden City in 1997 as a utility billing clerk. After five years in this position, she changed roles and began her career as the office manager in the Public Works Department. Here, she continued to assist with utility billing and worked with the purchase order system, oversaw invoicing, and was lucky enough to drive a snowplow! Shelly said goodbye to public works a couple of months ago, packed up her things, and moved to the administration building as our new accounting clerk. She is responsible for paying all the city’s bills to contractors and utility payments.
Shelly has a great can-do attitude and has adapted to this change through her ability to build professional working relationships with coworkers, management, and citizens alike.
When she’s not printing checks and making payments, Shelly enjoys reading books: mostly memoirs and mysteries. For those looking for a book you won’t want to put down, she recommends reading the memoir of Freddie Mercury from Queen! She communes with nature by sitting on her deck as much as possible and loves being entertained by her hummingbird feeder.
As an employee and resident, she is “in love with North Ogden.” She loves the mountains that she can literally reach out and touch, the many hiking trails, and beautiful sunsets. Shelly and her husband have been married for 34 years and share five children and ten beautiful grandchildren, ranging in age from two years to college age, and in her words… “Go UTES Swim and Dive Team!”
Thank you for your continued dedication to our city! We appreciate you!
