Born in Baltimore, Maryland,  on December 20, 1976, Shelley Seivert was raised by Charles and Linda Seivert in Severna Park, Maryland.  Her family has owned and operated Charles H. Seivert General Contractor Incorporated for 35 years.  As a child, Shelley was extremely athletic.  She played mostly team sports including soccer, lacrosse and track.  Excelling mostly in soccer, her accomplishments included 1st team all-county, all-state, all-metro and MVP.  Shelley went on to play division 1 soccer at Towson University and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Exercise Physiology.  Upon the end of soccer season in her senior year of college, there was no alternative soccer team at the same level of competition.

Seivert decided to try an individual sport.  "I always knew I was mentally strong enough to pursue a sport that relied solely on me!"  In December 1999, Shelley started training for boxing.  At the time, female boxing had started to really come out of the wood work.  After 6 months of hard training, on June 1, 2000, Shelley had her first amateur fight at Michael's 8th avenue in Glen Burnie, Maryland.  She walked away with a win and that started the ball rolling.  Throughout the next year Seivert won 3 more amateur fights, including the Police Athletic League National Tournament in New Orleans. 

Seivert fought amateurs for the next 6 years.  " I really just wanted to take my time.  Every fight has been a learning experience and a lot of fun." 

After accomplishing an amateur record of 10-2, Shelley decided to turn professional before her 30th birthday.  On December 7, 2006, Seivert fought her first professional 4 round fight against Kita Watkins from Camden, Arkansas.  The scale read, Seivert 160 and Watkins 157 1/4.  The fight was at a local venue, the National Guard Armory in Pikesville, Maryland.  The judges scored it 40-36, 39-37 and 39-37 all in favor of Shelley Seivert.  Watkins fell to a record of 2-1, while Seivert started her career at 1-0.  

Almost 2 months later, Seivert fought Cimberly Harris out of Tampa, Florida on January 27, 2007 at the same venue in Pikesville, Maryland.  Harris weighed in at 157 1/4 and Seivert came in at 160 1/4.  After a tough 3 rounds, Shelley suffered a broken right hand.  Although Seivert finished the fight, the judges scored it 37-39, 37-39 and 37-39 for a unanimous decision in favor of Harris.     

Due to the broken hand, Seivert sat out almost an entire year. Shelley came back in February 29, 2008, another 4 round fight, against Leslie Lubaczewski hailing from Bramwell, West Virginia.  Seivert came out strong and knocked Lubaczewski out in 34 seconds, improving her record to 2-1.  

Shelley works out of state in the summertime, putting boxing on hold from May till September.   

Returning to the ring on September 10, 2008, Seivert was scheduled for a 4 round fight against Carrine Hamlet from Mount Vernon, New York, at the Maryland Sportsplex in Millersville, Maryland.   In round 1, Seivert went down for the first time in her career after Hamlet pulled a left hook.  Seivert overcame the 1st round knockdown and aggressively came back to win the fight by a very close split decision. The scores were 38-37, 38-37 and 37-39, bringing Shelley's record to 3-1.  (courtesy photos submitted by Seivert)
