Shelley has gone against the grain most of her career, starting in 2000 when she left the corporate world to pioneer online research. Shelley created OTX (Online Testing Exchange), which in just nine years became one of the largest and fastest growing research companies in the world. The OTX story is one about creating new rules to redefine work/life balance, taking risks and inspiring a culture to thrive in a modern market. Shelley, and her 'wild ideas', officially changed the game. Under Shelley's vision and leadership as CEO and Chairmom she raised her OTX family with many of the same values she was brought up with. As the first female chief executive ranked in the research industry's top 25, she has brought emotion and passion to the boardroom and has devoted herself to becoming a mentor and friend to women and leaders in her industry. Her most recent creation is the Ipsos Girls' Lounge, a go-to destination for women at industry conferences to put their feet up, let their guard down, network and do business. The Girls' Lounge supports and mentors women to stand out with their unique leadership powers and transform corporate culture... together.
