Shelly is the “energizer bunny” and driving force for Marbury. She graduated in 3 1/2 years from Mercer University with two majors and a minor (one of the few non-UGA grads at our company). Shelly then started her career at Max2o Advertising in account management and web strategy & development, where she lead digital projects and implementation for big deal accounts like American Cancer Society and Fiserv. She left Max2o to start Marbury Creative Group in 2010.

As Partner and Executive VP, Shelly not only oversees the agency business, but also the account, digital, and media departments. She also leads new business initiatives and manages a few key accounts. With a background deeply rooted in digital, Shelly can’t help but stay involved with digital projects within the agency continuing her unique ability to simplify the technical side of digital for our clients. You will see her passion and excitement whenever you hear her speak about digital strategy and tactics.
