Cristina Tuser: How did you get started in your career?

Kelly Shipley: I got started in my career at LAN (Lockwood, Andrews and Newnam) actually. I’ve been at LAN since I graduated college from Texas A&M, and I’ve been at LAN for 16 years now. It’s been the same group and same boss my entire career. They haven’t given me a reason to leave, and I’ve enjoyed it, and I continue to stay at LAN. I love it, so I have no reason to leave.
