Shelley formed Allman Johnson CPAs & Advisors in 1995 with the late Bruce Allman, CPA. When Bruce retired in 2010, Shelley transitioned to full ownership. As owner of Allman Johnson, Shelley is focused on helping clients seek sophisticated, yet logical tax planning. Shelley started in public accounting in 1990 after a few years as assistant controller for a real estate/hotel development company. Shelley hails from a long line of “number crunchers”, with both her mother and grandmothers having long careers in banking. She is also an avid puzzle solver, thinking through solutions is Shelley’s forte. Therefore, a career in accounting seemed to be her calling. Shelley is a graduate of Purdue University with a degree in business and farm management. She is a member of the AICPA, the Indiana CPA Society, and the past chapter president of the American Society of Women Accountants (now known as The Accounting and Financial Women’s Alliance) and the Indiana Board of Accountancy. She has also held committee positions on the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy. In the community, Shelley is active in a variety of church activities including serving on the Indiana United Methodist Foundation Board of Directors. She also enjoys volunteering for the Siamese Rescue either as a foster or as a driver to unite rescued kitty cats with their new furrever homes. Additionally, she enjoys her neighborhood book club and the variety of genres they’ve read.
