SHELLY CONNOR

Shelly Connor is a seasoned creative who strives to glorify God through her work. She has worked for the US Conference of Catholic Bishops and currently serves as a graphic designer at Decided Excellence Catholic Media. She lives in Southeast Wisconsin with her charming husband and sweet daughter. She has recently become more interested in cultivating (literally) her love of gardening—asking, of course, for the intercession of St. Rose of Lima. She has many quirky fun facts about life experiences (she rides a motorcycle, was in an a cappella group, has bought orange shoes in at least four different countries, and she collects ampersands…to name a few), and enjoys learning about other cultures.
