Dr. Tammy Shelton
“Helping traditional higher education institutions serve students better – particularly non-traditional students – isn’t just a vocation. It’s my mission.”
My name is Tammy Shelton. As the Vice President of Business Development for Capital Education, I lead a team focused on developing business and strategic relationships for our clients with employees and constituents within the client geographic region.
My more than 20 years of experience in adult education has its roots in my student days. As President of the University of Texas Honor Society, I discovered that I really enjoyed working with students. So, after graduation, I began working in admissions at Austin Business College. I fell in love with the amazing adult students there, and I’ve never looked back. Since then, I‘ve followed my head and heart through various admissions, marketing, and academic opportunities including serving as the Vice Provost at a Liberal Arts University to find my calling here at CapEd. It’s also my honor to serve as the former National Chair for The Council for Accelerated Programs and board member of The Texas Women in Higher Education. To me, education has always been a lifelong commitment, which is why I pursued and received my Doctorate from Concordia University in April of 2020.
Fun Fact about me: I was one of Austin’s first female night club DJs, and I play keyboard and sing in bands around town.
