Named one of the “Babes of Anime – America’s hottest voice actresses” by Anime Insider Magazine and featured on IGN, Shelley has voiced hundreds of characters for anime series, films and games. Most recently, she won the 2012 Behind the Voice Actors award for Best Female Lead Vocal Performance in an Anime TV Series/OVA as Hamyuts Meseta in The Book of Bantorra. Shelley started her voice-over career with ADV Films in the late 90’s voicing lead female characters IN SIN: THE MOVIE as JC Armack and the SORCEROUS STABBER ORPHEN series as the obnoxious, though lovable, Cleao. Some fan fave roles (and Shelley’s too) over the years from ADV, Sentai Filmworks and Funimation include: Mirielle in NOIR, Captain Jonah in Starhip Troopers, Cortana and Dr Halsey in Halo Legends; Kalifa in One Piece; Canaan in Canaan; Nike in Appleseed Saga; Mariko in Summer Wars, Kyou in Clannad; Sakuya in Red Garden; Kiyoko in Gilgamesh; Jennifer in This Ugly Yet Beautiful World;, Mother Ant in Oh! Super Milk Chan; Leda in Cashern Sins, as well as live action films including: Dark Water; Gamera; Conduct Zero, Synesthesia and Yesterday. In addition to anime, Shelley has voiced numerous television, radio and television commercials, as well as maintains a healthy on-stage and on-camera career. As an award winning stage actress, Shelley has performed at a number of regional theatres including Stages Repertory Theatre, the Tony Award Winning Alley Theatre and Catastrophic Theatre in Houston (where she was an original company member alongside Emmy Award Winning actor Jim Parsons). Television and film roles include: Drop Dead Diva, Memphis Beat, Puncture, Playing House, Garrison, Esthers Diary, and Deep Terror.
