Shelley Keelor

Brand Ambassador

Shelley Keelor is a singer, award-winning actress, headliner, cabaret artist, teacher, mom, and yogi who resides in Jupiter, Florida with her 14 year-old son. She grew up in Louisville, Ky and always hoped but never dreamed that when she was singing, putting on skits and dancing for her unfailingly supportive mom in their basement that this would indeed be her livelihood. Her childhood dream was to dance for the Louisville Ballet and she began on stage as a ballerina tip-toeing for 10 years. Eventually, her path as a songstress and actress would prevail and today Ms Keelor stars in theatre productions, headlines at venues throughout South Florida and tours nationally in concerts on occasion.
