Shely brings a diverse range of previous work experience to her role at Up&Up. She was a biological researcher for Allergan, a global pharmaceutical company, and taught 5-8th grade math and science before returning to the home to raise four terrific teens.
At Up&Up, Shely manages the flow of office projects, supports agency operations–and she throws one heck of a Christmas party.
Outside of work you’ll most likely find her on the Swamp Rabbit Trail, taking on a home improvement project or brunching around the Upstate with her family.
Q&A with Shely Landrum
What’s your favorite thing about yourself?
I have a lot of energy so I can work really hard at something for a very long time. But watch out when I hit my wall! I crash quickly and need a glass of wine and something good to eat.
What’s your personal superpower?
I love to conquer a really big challenge that I set for myself in a short amount of time. Usually it involves a project while family members are out of town…like painting a few rooms, a huge sewing project or redoing something in the yard.
What do you want others to remember you for?
I would like others to say that I make them feel special and important when I talk with them. I also want to be remembered for being kind and thoughtful to anyone I come in contact with in life.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
Raise your kids so you enjoy being around them.
