Shelli Meador

Chief of Staff // "The One Really In Charge"

In her role as Executive Administrator, Shelli manages the schedules, inboxes and sanity of our CEO and president, acting as an extension of them to the team at large.

After earning her bachelor's degree in vocal performance at Harding University, Shelli attended law school at the University of Missouri at Kansas City before moving on to the University of Tennessee, where she completed her paralegal certification. In addition to working as a paralegal, she has served as the academic dean for a court reporting school and owned her own successful proofreading business.

Shelli is married to her high-school sweetheart, Mark, and together they have raised four pretty great kids. She and Mark are looking forward to being empty-nesters soon and starting on their bucket list. Shelli is always looking for new ways to organize and streamline our processes, and her efficiency and wide-ranging professional background make her an invaluable member of the Advent team. Shelli says that she expected keeping order for John Roberson and Todd Austin to be interesting, exciting and challenging ... and she hasn't been disappointed.
