About Shellie Berry:
When Shellie Berry started her own business in 2008, she needed a banking partner who was trustworthy, fast, flexible, and truly cared. Today, she gets to be that person for business owners across the Valley as a business development officer with Gateway Bank. Shellie believes the key to lifelong business success involves 3 C’s: consultation, connections, and capital – and she delivers on all three fronts to support entrepreneurs’ growth.
Inside and outside of work, Shellie is a fierce advocate for the underserved and overlooked. She has been actively involved in non-profit work for almost 20 years. Most recently, she helped launch the S.E.E. M.E. Program to close the wealth gap and improve economic equity in Arizona’s black communities.
When Shellie isn’t partnering with local business owners and non-profits, you can find her playing games with her husband and three kids, studying the Bible, and hiking with friends. Through all her adventures in life and in business, she lives by one motto: Joyful attitude. Humble gratitude.
