Inside MacPherson’s: Unsung Heroes of the DCs – Jackie Shelby

From time to time we  like to share the stories of the people who make up our amazing team. Today our featured person is Jackie Shelby, an Order Picker in our Reno DC.


Jackie Shelby has been a team member at our Reno Distribution Center for nearly three years. Before coming to work for MacPherson’s, Jackie’s first job was as a gas station attendant, where she learned the ins and outs of cars including fixing flat tires, changing oil and replacing spark plugs. Not only is Jackie well versed in many aspects of warehouse operation and  auto repair, she has many hobbies outside of work. In her spare time she enjoys crafts, gardening, riding her motorcycle, cooking, baking, and decorating cakes; in short, she is  a ” Jackie of all trades.” Jackie has four children, three daughters and a son, along with two grandchildren. She shares her home, and her wonderful cooking, with Rick her husband of twenty six years, a Cockatiel and two miniature Schnauzers. Once she retires she hopes to travel the country with her husband on their motorcycles, or a motor home. When asked what advice she would give to her fellow MacPhersonites, she said to, “Love with every ounce of energy you have, family and friends alike, treat others with kindness, don’t sweat the small stuff, and laugh a lot.” Well said and well lived!
