    Associate Financial Planner 
    Adv. Dip FP

    Shellie has been with Statewide Super for just over a year and is a new addition to the planning team, having started in our Contact Centre. Shellie's approachable and friendly manner helps put our members at ease, which is incredibly important when working with them to identify and reach their future goals. Breaking down and explaining complex concepts in layman terms is one of Shellie's natural gifts, quite possibly drawn from her highly developed negotiating skills from managing 3 boys (including a set of twins!).
