Shelby Morton is a single mother of two children. She started working with special needs children as a classroom aide in high school. For two years, while in college, she was a substitute teacher for the middle school special needs classroom. Life took a different turn and she ended up working as in the administrative field as a government contractor for over 15 years. After many years of ups and downs in the contracting world, Shelby decided to try something completely different and started as the Production Manager for a local ballet company where her children dance full time. Shelby has decided it is time to close the curtain on theater and follow her heart and return to work and advocate for those with special needs.
