She also offers comprehensive online wellness programs as well as a popular blog, where she creates and shares three healthy recipes a week to help you on your journey.

After experiencing her own sudden health storm in 2013, leading to an autoimmune diagnosis. Shelley took it upon herself to learn to listen to the screams and whispers of her body and heal using the power of food. Since then Shelley has continued to practise what she now preaches, whilst learning along the way that happiness is a large part of health. So finding the perfect balance between health and enjoyment is essential. She lives a clean life but still loves dining out regularly especially when an espresso martini is involved.
