Let's get to know each other!


Hi, I’m Shelley

I help women cross Solo Travel & Mexico Travel off their bucket list!

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

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

Like most unplanned things, however, it has empowered & fulfilled me in ways I could never have imagined!
