Facing gender discrimination shortly after enlisting her junior year in high school, she didn’t let that stop her, receiving Outstanding Airman of the Year (183rd Fighter Group, Springfield IL) because of her work after a deadly training accident. She’s now @RockinRoehrsRealtor on TikTok (licensed in CO & IL) and the Spokesperson for the League of Women Voters of the Pikes Peak Region (LWVPPR) – God’s Country. God gave Shelly red hair because he knew she needed a warning label. This fiery redhead will keep the storytellers on track and you on the edge of your seat, literally and virtually.

Yes, stories being told, and heard, can heal.
