Salem Presence
At A Glance
New Orleans native Shelley Hennig is widely recognized for her status as Miss Teen USA 2004. Her prize was a scholarship to attend The School for Film & Television, which inspired Shelley’s undying love for acting. This led to her landing the role of Stephanie Johnson on Days of our Lives two months before graduation from SFT.

Having lost her brother in an accident with a drunk driver, Shelley has campaigned vigorously in schools across the U.S. against drinking and driving and worked with the organization Buzz Free Prom to encourage students to stay sober for prom.
