Shelly Sitzer graduated from Brooklyn College in 1963. She worked as a vision therapist, before moving to Charlottesville, VA. She enjoys many forms of artistic expression, including writing poetry and short stories, creating oil and acrylic nature scenes on canvas, and making music on the piano. She has performed in many classic musicals as an actress and singer, both on the Long Island and Charlottesville community theater stages. She believes that each day should be enjoyed with the help of creative expression.
