"I love speaking in front of people. Small groups, large crowds, it really doesn’t matter.

The collective energy I get lets me know…

I was made for this."

Whether it’s her personal story of determination, perseverance, loss, success, failure or a content packed and engaging business presentation, Shelley will always deliver a powerful message.

Motivational and Inspirational

“I want to inspire you to live the best life you can by pursuing what sets your heart on fire! Let me help you put action behind your dreams …let’s blow your mind!”

Losing her business, house, cars and forced to get food stamps to feed her family while finding out she was pregnant was a life altering experience.

From her professional achievements to her personal highs and lows, Shelley doesn’t hold back.
