PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
Shelly just completed her Master of Business Administration from Louisiana State University so she could teach what she loves and lives – Entrepreneurship. Her family’s business, Wolff Tan of Tallahassee, Inc. first opened on campus at Florida State University in 1996. Over the next 18 years, Wolff Tan grew to six locations in two states where they were considered the premier destination for all things indoor tanning, education, and customer service. As well, Shelly worked extensively with the State of Florida, on behalf of her industry to help facilitate proper legislation.

Eye Candy was another brick and mortar business that Shelly began in 2010 that has just been extended into the e-commerce market under its new name, Chixx Hair Bows, LLC. She has a passion for serving her customers, and has adopted Mr. Jim Moran’s focus on cooperation, consideration, communication, accountability, and innovation.

Shelly feels honored to be a part of the Jim Moran College of Entrepreneurship, where she can help marry the marketplace with higher education, and grow with her students.
