Shelley's previous clinical practice and research interests are focused on supporting persons with dementia and their family caregivers. Her master of nursing degree (University of Saskatchewan, 2003) was a systematic review of interventions to support family caregivers to persons with dementia and her PhD (University of Alberta, 2011) research was a phenomenology on the experience of providing end-of-life care to a relative with advanced dementia. Shelley taught first and second year nursing students for a number of years within the NEPS and in 2011 assumed a tenure-track position with the College of Nursing.
