She also conducted campaign work in Oregon and Utah for the American Civil Liberties Union Reproductive Freedom Project. Shelly's professional life began in journalism in Colorado, covering public policy and the arts for a weekly newspaper and hosting a radio show for the regional public station … and paying rent by waiting tables and adjusting ski bindings on Crested Butte mountain.
