Lion Shelley Gauthier Bio
Lion Shelley, very proudly, considers herself a *Military Brat*. She was lucky to experience life in many places and attended high school in Canberra, Australia. After returning to Canada she majored in psychology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. A member of the Pembroke Petawawa Lions Club since 1992, Lion Shelley has held every office in the club and has maintained 100% attendance. At the District level, she was Retention Chair on the MERL Team and held the offices of Zone and Region Chair. Recently, she completed a 4 year term as District Coordinator for the Global Leadership Team. Education is a priority with Lion Shelley and, she consistently promotes Lions training of all kinds. She is proud to be a graduate of the Regional Lions Leadership Institute, Advanced Lions Leadership Institute and the Faculty Development Institute, which is considered to be the most difficult course in Lions. In 2009, Lion Shelley married PDG Joe, who was then the district’s first 2nd Vice District Governor. They met when Lion Joe was her Region Chair. That gave a whole new meaning to the term *Travelling Lion*! Lion Shelley has two grown daughters, Shannon and Arden, and is a proud Meemaw to her grandson Flynn. Lion Shelley wishes to express her appreciation to the Lions of District A-4, for the opportunity and honour to serve as their District Governor.
