The daughter of an Air Force veteran, Hill was born in Minot, N.D. and has lived in numerous states. She has lived in the Mountain Home area the past 29 years.

“Shelly’s experience in several areas of financial services, in addition to her management of a small business, are great assets for both our retail and business customers,” said Mike Willard, president and CEO of Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas. “She also shares the Arvest culture of being involved in the community and helping to fulfill a need wherever she can, so we’re excited to welcome her as a new team member.”

Hill currently serves on the board of directors for Hospice of the Ozarks and the Mountain Home Lions Club. She has been a member of the Lions Club for 19 years. Hill has chaired the American Cancer Society’s local Relay for Life event the past five years and has been a board or committee member of Gamma House, Serenity House, Peitz Cancer Support House and the Marion County Sheriff’s Patrol Association. 

She and her husband, Tom, have five adult children and attend St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church.
