As a youngster, Dundee-born Shelley was driven by the enjoyment of team sports and exercise. She was naturally good and enjoyed succeeding. However, her success was combined with the joy she felt at her father’s pride in her achievements. When he proudly boasted about his sporty ‘bairn’ to his friends, it instilled something crucial in Shelley. It deeply embedded an enduring drive and positive mindset. It incentivised her to push herself to always do her best and then to do better still. To do the best she could at everything, she set her mind to accomplish without failure. High achievement became hard-wired in Shelley, as did setting a goal and working hard towards attaining it. No matter the focus, determination, risks and sacrifices required in the process of reaching this goal.
When her father tragically died in early mid-life due to lifestyle-related ill health, Shelley was devastated. She felt his death was avoidable and could have been prevented if there had been a lifestyle intervention. And so it was that Shelley took a personal oath to commit herself to a journey of lifelong learning about health and fitness, in honour of what she felt was her father’s wasted, unlived life. Thereafter, Shelley embarked on this journey of self-improvement and self-education. Now highly educated in her passion subjects of sport, exercise and nutrition, she uses her experience, strength and hope to help transform other people’s lives. Her aim is to help prevent people from dying unnecessarily young like her father.
Shelley is committed to making the widest and most impactful positive difference in society as possible. A difference that will inspire, motivate and educate people so they can make informed choices about the single most important thing they can hope to control in life – their HEALTH and that of their families.
