Shelby Tallon —
Office Manager & Surgical Coordinator
Shelby Tallon earned her bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. As soon after she finished college, she began working for Dr. Davis as his office manager. While she still has a passion for kids, Shelby was happy to find her true calling. She joined Davis Spine & Orthopaedics in January 2012, where she held the responsibilities of being the Office Manager and Surgical Coordinator in addition to being a partner and office manager for Dr. Davis' Physical Therapy office. When she heard that the practice was relocating to Florida, Shelby did not hesitate to move as well so that she could continue to manage for Davis Spine. In her free time, Shelby is a huge animal advocate and loves her three cats. She also competes in Tough Mudder races and participates in Zumba. She's a Pittsburgh Steelers fan and makes it back to Pittsburgh to see her family as often as she can.
