Shelby Layne
PI Case Manager

My name Is Shelby Layne. All my life, I have always wanted to help people. So, I am very excited to be a part of the Combined Community Services team. A little bit about me: I was born and raised here in Warsaw, Indiana. I completed my bachelors in Human Services at IPFW in 2015. I am currently working towards my master’s degree in couple and family counseling at IPFW. Maybe the most interesting fact about me: I received the gift of life, my cousin Susie’s kidney, in August of 2015. I enjoy yoga, knitting, and cooking. I am an animal lover and plant enthusiast.
