OXFORD, Pa., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Continental Who's Who recognizes Lisa M. Shelton as a Pinnacle Lifetime Member in recognition of her contributions to the field of Accounting.
As Treasurer/Account Manager of Shelton's Pallet Co. in her hometown of Oxford, PA, Shelton utilizes her experience in accounting and office management. She will be taking a course in the Spring to learn more about the Human Resources side of the business. She has worked in her current role for the past year following the passing of her mother-in-law, who owned and ran the business prior to Shelton taking over office operations.
"We've been revamping the process," Shelton said. "It's been a very educational year. My husband runs the 'outside' portion while I am maintaining the office side of things." Her son has started at a technical college, but he also works after school every day for the company. She hopes one day that he will eventually want to take over the business.
Shelton credits her mother-in-law's sister, Linda Weaver, with offering the greatest help when learning the job. "She [Weaver] has worked for Shelton's for 20 plus years and did all of the office logistics," Shelton said. When Lisa started in her role, she said that we were completely in the dark about the day to day operations of the business. It has taken a full year to learn all the responsibilities that are required for this position. She said that "I don't know what I would've done without Linda. We've spent many late nights going through files over the past year and have shed a few tears along the way as well. It has been a difficult time, but we have made it through"
"None of this would've been possible without a phenomenal team of professionals to help her along the way Lisa said. "You have to have a support team of accountants, attorney's and financial advisors to help direct you." Lisa credits her success this year to Simon Lever, LLC, [Corinne Bush], Winifred M. Sebastian, Esquire and the Chartered Advisory Group, Inc.
Shelton's Pallet Co. distributes pallets to retailers in Pennsylvania, Maryland and New Jersey. The company has been in business for 38 years and operates a satellite location at the Port of Wilmington in Wilmington, Delaware.
A graduate of 1988 Harcum College earning an Associate of Applied Science degree, Shelton has been recently recognized by the National Association of Professional Women as a member of the VIP Woman of the Year Circle. Prior to inheriting her current role, she completed several years at Commodore Computer and then worked at Lincoln University. She finally ended up at The University of Pennsylvania for 13 years before to transitioning into a new role as a stay-at-home mom.
Shelton is dedicated to giving back to her community and is a member of several associations. She supports the Lighthouse Youth Center, is a member of the ASPCA and many other animal programs. Her family also maintains and supports a relationship with her local police and the local Masonic Lodge #353.
When not working, Shelton enjoys horseback riding, traveling and spending time with her family. She dedicates this recognition to her husband, Chuck, their children, Chloe and Aaron, and to the loving memory of Helen and Dave Shelton.
