Shanna Kelly


Location: Yakima 


As an Atlas Staffing Recruiter, Shanna is responsible for sourcing, interviewing, and placing candidates. She loves the teamwork, positive atmosphere, and encouragement among the Atlas team and hopes to see Atlas Staffing recognized as the best staffing agency in the Pacific Northwest. A fast learner, Shanna is great at managing a large capacity of work and treats each candidate and client as if they are her only priority.


An accomplished writer, Shanna started writing stories when she was five and had her first story published at age seven. Although she was unable to attend high school due to life circumstances, she later received her GED and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and a certificate in Human Resources. In her most recent role, she built the HR department from the ground up and served as the company’s sole recruiter. Shanna is excited to be part of such a fun and competent team and looks forward to making an impact at Atlas Staffing.


Get To Know Shanna


When you were 5 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A Marine Biologist. I became a scuba diver as a compromise.


What’s your favorite piece of technology of all time?

Video chat. It allows me to talk to my granddaughter every day. They live 6 hours away so without this technology, she would not know me when she sees me.


If you could pick one celebrity or historical figure to have lunch with, who would it be?

Stephen Hawking, because I am sure he knows the secrets of the universe.


What’s your nickname and how’d you get it?

My granddaughter calls me Sug-Sug. It was a name I gave her the day she was born, but when she started talking it’s what she associated with me so she named me that. She has never once called me Grandma.


What’s a fun fact nobody would’ve guessed about you?

I build dollhouses/dollhouse accessories and custom dollhouse floors and sell my creations on Etsy.
