Shelley Russell completed her undergraduate education at Elon University in 2009 with Bachelor of Arts degrees in Journalism and Environmental Studies. She is an enthusiastic and dedicated student, looking to expand her journalistic skills to include interactivity through multimedia aspects and Web design. During her time as an undergraduate, the Philadelphia native served as Special Projects Editor for The Pendulum, in which she was responsible for the layout and content of the center two pages of the weekly paper. It was here that she gained a curiosity for interactive media due to the interactive potential that her section could have online. Shelley is also an avid piano player and has been involved in music, dance and theatre since she was in elementary school. In the future, she hopes to pursue a job where she can manage, organize and help facilitate multiple tasks to produce a final product in a fast-paced and exciting work environment.
