She writes, speaks, produces, and develops media with a timeless foundational, back to basics message to build women in corporations, community, and civic organizations. As a keynote and group speaker, Shellie inspires women and challenges them using home-repair tools which she then aligns with life principles.

The tool, furnishing, and home repair parallels that drive her work were born out of her own life experiences (positive and negative) as a woman, a mom, and a corporate professional. With her own elements of style and wisdom, Shellie works diligently to motivate, educate, and empower women in every facet of life.
