    Sugar Mutts Rescue

  • She got her start as a writer at creatively led agencies such as Droga5 and Johannes Leonardo, working on brands ranging from Prudential to Pure Protein. During these years, she simultaneously pursued improv comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade and sketch comedy writing at the PIT in New York City. Her interest in studying comedy eventually led her to the lesser known art of story performing. She's been performing since 2011, including opening for 20 time Moth Slam winning Adam Wade in his solo show "Adam from New Hampshire". She's also made multiple appearances at Eric Vetter's "SUPER Storytellers" and Asher Novak's "The Whole Story" and "So What Happened Was..." in NYC.

    Her work for Sugar Mutts Rescue was recognized at The One Show in 2018, for directing as well as short form comedy campaigns.

    Shelton has directed spots and/or content for brands such as Sprint, Xfinity, Walmart, Johnsonville Sausages, Country Time Lemonade, Hormel, and IHOP. Her perceptive nature paired with her improv background brings a unique voice to her commercial work. She firmly believes there is truth in comedy, and vice versa. She's drawn to what's real, what's relatable, and what's funny because it's true.

    You should call her. She's super fun to work with.


    Picrow — Pictures in a Row — makes films, television, and commercials of all kinds. It’s a place where people think and talk about film — where Godard and Renoir matter and Jean Luc isn’t an interior designer.

    Of course it’s a tricky business, all this, but there is art in the business and that's that.
