Meet the Staff of Voices for Healthy Kids: Shelly Hogan


Shelly Hogan
Media Advocacy Manager

I work with Voices for Healthy Kids as the media advocacy manager. I have a background in communications and media relations, and I love the way personal stories can help people understand real situations from another point of view. By seeing the impact current policies have on the lives of individuals, you can create a movement to positively impact the lives of many. Role: I am an editor for

Policy Passion: My family relocated a little more than a year ago. When we were looking for a new place to live, we talked about they kind of place we wanted to live more than the actual location. I have a passion to help more communities become the kind of place I want to live – a place where my kids can safely walk to school, where I can run most of my errands on foot, on a bike, or using public transportation, and lots of places to be active as a family.

Favorite Food: Anything I can grow or pick! I have lots of yummy things growing in my garden right now: blueberries, tomatoes, peppers, beets, carrots, radishes, sugar snap peas, green beans, Brussels sprouts, strawberries, cucumbers and pumpkins. By the end of summer there will be loads of wild blackberries to pick.

Favorite Exercise: I walk at least 5 miles almost every day, and do my best to make a yoga class at least once every week.
