Schelly Marlatt

Executive Director

A lifelong resident of Gwinnett, Schelly is passionate about people and community, crediting her parents for instilling the values of engagement, service and paying it forward. She believes the phrase “it takes a village” rings true as it takes many people with different qualities, skills and values from all walks of life to make a community great. Her deeply rooted commitment to community has led her to serve Gwinnett County Government since 2010 and assume the role of Executive Director of Gwinnett Clean & Beautiful in 2016. At the helm of GC&B, Schelly is dedicated to providing a safe and sustainable community – free of litter, graffiti and blight – to attract an up-and-coming generation of people, businesses and organizations to Gwinnett County.  She strives to engage her neighbors to do the same and wants people to be proud of where they live, work and play.

This two-time breast cancer survivor and lover of all things Auburn is proud to be a single mom to two amazing boys. When not hard at work in GC&B’s offices, at a local school or out in the community networking, collaborating, building new partnerships, or facilitating a cleanup or recycling event, Schelly can be found in the congregation at Gwinnett Church at Hamilton Mill, in the stands watching her boys play sports (a LOT of sports – including baseball, tennis, and track/field) or creating a culinary masterpiece in the kitchen of her Dacula home. She is a firm believer in the power of red wine and chocolate to solve most problems. 

Desired Superpower

The power to wave a magic wand and make litter, illegal dumping and graffiti disappear (and wouldn’t it be cool if she could make the graffiti reappear on the body of the “artist” like a tattoo? Bet they’d never tag a wall in Gwinnett again!)

“Everything You Need is Already Inside You. Don’t Wait for Others to Light Your Fire. You Have Your Own Matches.” ~ Darren Hardy

Favorite Outdoor Scene in Gwinnett

Schelly loves clearing her head among the trails, scenery and local wildlife at Mulberry Park, but she also enjoys being surrounded by her Gwinnett County neighbors while attending outdoor concerts and events at venues like The Bowl at Sugar Hill, Lawrenceville Lawn, Duluth Town Green and more.
