Shelly McGuire

Shelley has over twenty-five years of business and educational experience, playing roles in human resource management, compliance administration, marketing, branding, and corporate training.  In addition, Shelley has also taught in the high school setting, was a special education department chair and taught at the collegiate level too.  

She currently owns her own online event planning business and focuses her energy and passion on bringing the government contracting community together on various topics to educate and help bridge the gap of the absence of in-person events with government officials. Shelley has always enjoyed assisting others, especially small businesses, and connecting the dots by way of holding social events around the MD, DC and VA area for the last 15 years.  She takes great pride in knowing her social connections, while far and wide, are only six degrees or less of separation from each other.  

In her spare time, she leverages her Florida real estate license to help her followers who mainly reside in MD, VA and DC connect with the Florida real-estate market.  Shelley has been a real estate investor for 20 years owning various types of properties and she has always wanted to be a realtor since buying her first investment property in 2003.
