Welcome Angela Shelley to the Team!

The Utah National Parks Council would like to welcome Angela Shelley to the team. As our newest employee she will be the new Program Assistant Angela helping with Advancement, Training, Camping, and more! This is how she describes herself:

shelley-horseback“I have always been enthusiastic about education and helping others overcome frustration in the learning process as they achieve objectives. Learning to make both physically and mentally healthy choices along with working with youth to do the same has always been a passion of mine which only makes me more excited to be working for the Utah National Parks Council.

I was raised in a Scouting family in Orem, UT with five Eagle Scouts (dad and four brothers) and a mom who continues to work as a volunteer in Scouting even now. After participating and competing in FBLA and becoming the Business Sterling Scholar at Orem High, studying business at BYU seemed like the obvious next step for me, but somehow a major in business turned into a bachelor’s degree in Linguistics with minors in Japanese and TESOL.

shelley-familyAfter serving an LDS mission in Japan for 18 months, I returned to complete my bachelor’s (Linguistics) and master’s degrees (ESL) and spent the next several years seasonally changing jobs between ESL teacher (winter) and Japanese speaking guide for national parks and monuments in the southwestern United States (summer). Most recently, I worked with advanced tech tools to assist with speech therapy and accent reduction (so cool!).

In my free time, I enjoy volleyball, SCUBA diving, travel, karaoke, horseback riding and finding new restaurants/foods to try as well as spending time with my parents, siblings, and my 19 nieces and nephews.”

    After working with Angela for just a few weeks, I am truly impressed! Angela is not just customer service-oriented, but had a great mind for solving complex problems and is fantastic on follow-up. Angela will be working closely with the council program-level committees, and they are certainly in for a treat.

    Thank you for joining us, Angela!

    I am really impressed with Angela. She has literally hit the ground running with her new position. Sometimes I forget she is new because she seems so comfortable with each assignment. I can’t wait to see what else she brings to the table! Welcome Angela!

    Welcome Angela. It’s only been a few weeks but I’m already so happy to be able to work with you. I appreciate your can-do, getter-done attitude and the way you attack obstacles. Thanks for all you do to help the Camping Department!
