Taking everything she had, Shelly invested in building an assisted living facility, Loving Arms Assisted Living. After filling the facility within 6 months, Shelly began to expand the facility to include more beds for those in need, expanding it by 5500 square feet in 2006. In 2015, she sold the facility for nearly $15 million.
During those years, Shelly wasn’t just building and expanding an assisted living facility. She also continued her education and achieved several accomplishments. First, she became a Registered Nurse through Shenandoah University to help take care of her family. In 2003, she got her Class A Contractor’s License to continue building and expanding her knowledge of properties. In 2011, Shelly started the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry and created a computer software to help find people in need. Today, Loaves and Fishes serves over 300 people a week. In late 2019, Shelly gained access to her grandfather’s land and by March of 2020, she had commissioned her construction company, Servants Hands Construction, to begin developing and building the land.
