Meet Our Team
The Beaufort Digital Corridor is a highly collaborative organization with advisors hailing from the Beaufort tech community and beyond. This allows us to stay lean, relevant and highly responsive to the dynamic needs of our technology entrepreneurs and tech-related businesses. We believe in community-sourced intelligence as the preferred way to operate.
The BDC Foundation Board of Directors sets the priorities for the organization and the Executive Director carries them out. The Leadership team at the Charleston Digital Corridor mentors and assist as needed.
Nicie has a passion to forward Beaufort's economic development and is excited to lead the BDC's mission. Close to completion of a Master's degree in Information Science, Nicie was recently the Dean of a small college in the Pacific Northwest and has South Carolina ties from her time at Clemson University. What is it about Beaufort that she loves most? Boating, beach walking, fishing, and most certainly the wonderful people of the Lowcountry.
Shelley is the outgoing Executive Director and will continue some remote work with the Corridor through summer 2020. With a penchant for tech and startups, she brings an entrepreneurial mindset, executive business administration, human resources, collaborative communication, program and project management, and strategic thinking to impact Beaufort's economic development.
