Hi, I'm Shelley...

Let's get to know each other!

"You are the hero of your own story."

~Joseph Campbell, The Hero’s Journey

I help women like you cross Solo Travel and Mexico Travel off your bucket list!

I’m a former Miami travel magazine editor who ditched the office for the world!

Well… that’s the short, sweet and neat version. The real version’s a little more imperfect, a lot more scary and actually, I became a solo traveler on accident 😳

Like most unplanned things, it empowered me in ways I never imagined!

Take The Hero’s Journey with me, to see why I call solo travel the quickest form of therapy ⤵
