Shelley Fairbairn is the Office Coordiantor at Monte Creek Ranch Winery and brings to the group an endless passion for all things database-related. Shelley has dabbled in various industries over the years that has created quite the unique resume. She has a certificate in Television Broadcasting and a degree in Human Resources Management from BCIT. Before her time here at the ranch, she worked in electronic retail for over 20 years.

Her childhood is filled with fond memories that come with growing up on her family’s ranch in Alberta. It was in these early years that she developed a passion for agriculture and Canadian history. There were many nights around the campfire spent sharing the tales of the people and of the land. This is a passion that Shelley shares in the tasting room when she can be pulled away from her desk to the tasting bar.

In more recent history, Shelley chose to settle in the small settlement of Pritchard, located just past the winery. This area caught her eye as it has a small community, has easy access to all the beauty the ‘West’ has to offer and the opportunity to explore the next frontier in winemaking. She is thrilled to be a part of the Monte Creek Ranch Winery team by working with databases to help grow the business.

When Shelley isn’t formatting and decrypting excel sheets, she enjoys camping, kayaking and taking her dog Teek for long walk around the parks and common land in the beautiful Thompson Valley.
