Shelley is a bartender at Barcode. She found Dawn living on the streets and offered to take her in, Dawn accepted. Shelley and Dawn grew closer as Shelley revealed that her family abandoned her after she came out to them as a lesbian. Shelley convinced Dawn to reach out to her parents, as their friendship grew stronger.

Shelley continued to let Dawn stay with her while Dawn figured things out. Shelley admitted to Dawn that her parents disowned her when she came out of the closet, but she told the young girl that things had changed. Soon, they shared a kiss and made love. Shelley wasn't aware that Barbara spied her and Dawn together and then questioned Dawn about their relationship. Soon after, Dawn came out to her family; Barbara refused to accept it. Shelley, meanwhile, was proud of Dawn for finally being honest with her loved ones. They continued to have a sexual relationship, which allowed them to grow closer. Shelley told Dawn that going to the bible camp wouldn't be a bad thing, as long as she had a positive attitude. After Dawn left, Shelley told Andy that she hoped Dawn would be okay. Soon after, Dawn returned home early and revealed to Shelley that Jonah had raped her. Shelley convinced Dawn to go to the hospital to get checked out to ensure she was physically okay. At the hospital, Shelley saw Helen and revealed to her what had happened to Dawn. Shelley supported Dawn throughout the rape, and was then shocked when Dawn revealed that Barbara had shot and killed Jonah. Shelley rushed Dawn to the hospital after she collapsed; they learned that Dawn was pregnant with Jonah's baby. Shelley suggested that Dawn have an abortion, which Dawn agreed to.

Shelley was relieved when Dawn agreed to have an abortion. She took her former love to a clinic but they realized that Dawn was too far along to have the procedure. Cheresa then suggested to Dawn that she give her baby up for adoption, since she was adopted. Dawn agreed. Shelley, meanwhile, wondered how close Dawn and Cheresa had become. She asked Cheresa, but she told Shelley that they were just friends. After Dawn was shot and lost the baby, Shelley supported her friend and told her to move back home so she could be closer to her parents. Shelley continued to support Dawn while she grieved the loss of her child. She asked Dawn about her feelings for Cheresa, but Dawn told her that she wasn't in a head space to have a relationship. Once Cheresa returned from the Gen Next House, Shelley supported Dawn when they kissed. Shelley also helped Dawn after Helen and Barbara died.

Shelley supported Dawn while she was grieving Barbara and Helen, and then when Helen turned up alive. Shelley also suggested to Cheresa that she hire a PI to uncover the truth about her biological parents. Shelley supported Cheresa's quest to find her biological parents and suggested she hire a PI. She became worried about Dawn when her friend starting to exhibit signs of exhaustion all the time. Together with Adam and Helen, Shelley realized that Dawn was self-medicating with her anti-depressants. After Cheresa's accident, Shelley supported Dawn while she went to rehab for her addiction.

Shelley continued to support her friends, Dawn and Cheresa. Shelley was stunned when Dawn arrived on her doorstep and confronted her about her affair with Cheresa as Shelley thought that they were going to keep it a secret. Dawn told Shelley that they were no longer friends and left. Cheresa and Shelley wondered how they could make it up to Dawn. A short time later, Shelley reminded Dawn of everything that they had been through together and told her not to throw that away because of a mistake. Cheresa, then, realized what she and Shelley could do to make it up to Dawn and she raced to tell her friend. Upon arriving at Shelley’s, however, Cheresa was horrified to see her dead, stabbed multiple times and rose peddles were left on top of her body.
