Welcome, Shelby!

We’re so pleased to welcome Shelby Lashaway to the GJM family as a consulting and assurance administrative team member. Shelby joined us in early November. We hope you enjoy getting to know her a bit better in this fun Q&A.   

Describe your role at GJM: Assist the consulting and assurance team, besides my role, I always have the goal to bring positivity and spread it like glitter! 

Why did you choose the accounting industry? I wanted to experience something new, and truthfully, data is relaxing to me. When I interviewed with GJM I knew I would be doing something new and in turn there would be a learning curve. I had the ability to stay in a field I was more accustomed to, but as soon as I met the team here, I knew this was the place for me. I have never met a more welcoming group and instantly felt home!  

What do you like best about accounting? The data and diversity of it all.  

Are you from the Toledo area originally? If not, where are you from? I grew up just outside of Toledo, in Swanton.  

What do you like about living in Northwest Ohio? I really love to be outdoors, and we have some really great Metroparks. There are also way less creatures in NW Ohio that could eat me while on a hike compared to other areas.   

Where did you go to school? High School: Swanton. College: Ross College 

Anything you’d like to share about past work/school history? I’ve transitioned from healthcare, aviation, tech, to now accounting. I’ve really enjoyed gaining new skills and meeting new people through these different industries.  

Do you have any pets, hobbies, family you’d like to mention? I do! I’m a fur and feather mom, I have two Chihuahua mixes, three chickens, and a chinchilla.  

How do you like to spend your free time? I absolutely love to cook, I’m definitely a foodie. If the weather is nice, I love to be outside and by the water any chance I can.  

Favorite book? Favorite movie? Favorite book: More so favorite author, I love anything by Heather Graham. My favorite movie is Jurassic Park.
