Ms Shelley Roberts
Shelley graduated with Honours in English Language and Literature from the University of Melbourne in 1974. The following year she moved to the UK where she obtained a Post- Graduate Certificate in Education from the University of London and taught English for two years at a school in Surrey.
A move into book publishing via the Publishers Association in London preceded a return to Australia and a long career in the world of books, encompassing senior communications and marketing roles at Oxford University Press, Nelson Publishing, Collins Booksellers and the State Library of Victoria. An alumna of Janet Clarke Hall, Shelley treasures her memories of College days and welcomes the opportunity to engage with JCH alumni.
