Shelley was born and raised in Jackson County, Indiana, graduated from Brownstown High School and continued her education at Indiana University and University of Evansville.

Shelley wrote this memory of hunting the annual Christmas tree with her dad and siblings. Mom would be at home awaiting the prize tree and all would join in the celebration of decoration.

Having given her aunt, author Judy Kiel McKain, permission to share the poem results in this book.

In remembrance of Shelley’s life and contributions as a pediatric physical therapist for 34 years, we focus on the legacy she leaves through the Shelley A. Trimble Fund for Pediatric Neuro Recovery at the University of Louisville.

Shelley came to Louisville from Gainesville, FL in the fall of 2012, along with Dr. Andrea Behrman, to establish one of the first pediatric neuro recovery programs of its kind in the country embedded in Frazier Rehab Institute, now known as Kosair Charities Center for Pediatric Neuro Recovery at the University of Louisville.  She believed strongly in locomotor training as the best therapy she had ever witnessed for improving the lives of children with spinal cord injuries.
