Support Team at Watson & Carroll

Shelley Novacek - Accounting Coordinator

Shelley Novacek

Shelley was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and her family moved to Nebraska when she was a teenager. She graduated from high school in Omaha, Nebraska. After high school, she attended Metro Tech Community College and The University of Nebraska at Omaha.

Shelley worked in the accounting department of the Investment Division at Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company for 12 years. She then became a stay-at-home mom when she and her husband had their first child.

Shelley considers herself blessed to be a stay-at-home mom for 12 years to raise their four children (three sons Tyler, Zach, and Nick, and one daughter, Morgan). Shelley and her husband enjoy supporting and attending all the sporting events and activities in which their four children were/are involved because “they are our world.”

In 2007, Shelley began working as a Special Education Assistant in an elementary school. Shelley expressed, “I am so thankful for this chapter of my life. I cannot imagine not having had the chance to work with these very special children/students. My life is better because of knowing them.”

In 2017, Shelley was offered an amazing opportunity to come back into the accounting field, working at Watson & Carroll, heading up our accounting department.

When she’s not working, Shelley and her husband enjoy spending time outdoors, attending many local outdoor concerts, farmer’s markets, craft fairs and visiting local wineries. They are avid Nebraska Husker football fans, although Shelley is still an avid OU Sooners football fan (she insists she can be both)!
