Shirley was the president and sole owner of the Divorce Mediation Institute of Utah (founded in 1998) from July, 2004, through April, 2012. In April, 2012, she partnered with Michael Lofgran and Diana Huntsman, in the interest of moving her vision for the company forward.
Heartbreakingly for her family, friends, co-workers, clients, and all who loved her and benefited from her wisdom, Shirley passed away unexpectedly on October 21, 2012.
Shirley was on the administrative office of the Utah State Court's roster, and a master mediator from 2003 until 2012. She was a member of the Association of Conflict Resolution and served on the Utah Council of Conflict Resolution in its infancy.
Shirley mediated over 3000 sessions, compassionately helping couples through the process of ending unhappy marriages.
Today, Shirley's company, Divorce Mediation Institute of Utah, carries forward Shirley's vision of helping people, using the insights, wisdom, processes, and passion which Shirley passed on through her training.
