CHICAGO, USA // An award-winning creative leader with more than 20 years of industry experience, Shelley drives the creative vision for the agency globally. She also chairs the agency’s Global Creative Council — a group comprised of creative leaders representing each office designed to foster collaboration and push the boundaries of brand experience.

Based in Chicago, Elkins has been instrumental in driving award-winning and results-generating creative for the agency. Under her direction, Jack has garnered several high-profile industry awards including Clios, Shorty’s, Reggies, EX and PRO awards for clients such as P&G, M&M’s and L.L.Bean.

A writer by trade, Shelley is passionate about storytelling and helping brands prove their promise. She is also committed to building teams that reflect the diverse world we live in, better supporting diverse talent, and better supporting parents in the workplace. She is a proud signatory for the Time’s Up/Advertising movement and enlisted Jack Morton’s global offices to sign life-size copies of the open letter in solidarity.

A mom herself of Lincoln (5), Madeline (2.5) and her first baby, the Outlaw Josey Wales (a husky-shepherd rescue), Shelley loves spending time with her kids and husband, traveling, baking and gardening.

Prior to joining Jack Morton, Shelley led creative for Digitas in Chicago and San Francisco on several AOR accounts including KitchenAid, Emerson and eBay. She graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia Journalism School with an emphasis in advertising.
