Preference Personnel

Shelley Nelson

Shelley Nelson

When you stop in the front door at Preference, Shelley’s smiling face will be the first you see. Shelley started working with our team on a temporary basis and somehow, we convinced her to stay with us permanently! Her ability to make every single person we work with feel welcomed and important does not go unnoticed. Shelley’s caring, genuine personality and willingness to take on a variety of tasks makes her a valuable asset to our team. She has the ability to talk with anyone and wants to help others succeed in whatever way she can. Shelley has experience in bookkeeping, managing a household, various temporary projects and even worked at WeFest (claimed her most unusual job ever). Through patience and her drive to help others, she will assist you with whatever you may need. If you are  stopping in our lobby or calling our office, you are in good hands with Shelley!

People would be surprised to know…
I had my second child at home accidently! We don’t know the exact time since we were at home and my husband’s clock was set 15 minutes fast. We recorded the time at 7:57am because that was everyone’s best guess.
