While working in the United Arab Emirates, she studied the Art of Middle-Eastern Belly Dance, which she still performs and teaches.  For many years she has worked as a DJ in the UK with residencies in Norway and the Middle East.  Shelley later created her own Magic/Illusion Act and has experience as a Compere, Speaker and Presenter.  She managed her own Entertainment Agency for 10 years booking tribute bands and named Artistes and has also written various articles for magazines and made several Radio and TV appearances.

Shelley has an advanced certificate in feline behaviour and psychology and a diploma (with distinction) in big cat studies under the tuition of Peter Neville with COAPE (Centre of Applied Pet Ethology) and Compass Education and Training. 

With a life-long interest in wildlife and a passion for big cats, Shelley grew up watching documentaries and programmes on the natural world.  She has been inspired by Charlotte Uhlenbroek and the work of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and had the pleasure to meet Sir David Attenborough, Jane Goodall, Virginia McKenna and Wildlife Artiste David Shepherd.

Shelley set up "BIG CAT Conservation" in the UK, raising awareness, funds and sponsors for registered overseas rescue shelters and wildlife charities to help fund big cat conservation projects.  She organises fundraising events and donates a large portion of her fee from her own speaking engagements or children's parties.  She is currently involved in various projects including “Las Pumas” Rescue Shelter in Costa Rica, WFFT in Thailand and the Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT) in South Africa.  With a proven track record for fundraising Shelley has previously raised over £10,000 for various charities and Big Cat Conservation projects.
