A Dual Olympian, World Champion, & Australian Representative in Three Sports, she is a successful Keynote Speaker, Businesswoman and Mum.

Shelley is one of Australia's top Sportswomen and motivational speakers. Her life's goal is to ensure others get a chance to enjoy the same benefits from achieving their goals as she does from hers.
As a child, Shelley's dream was to represent her country and wear the Green and Gold at the Olympics. As a youngster she played and enjoyed all sports and represented Australia in Track & Field, Netball & Surf Life Saving.

At 24 years of age, a full knee reconstruction sidelined her netball career. But not one to shy away from a challenge, Shelley did not give up on her dream and found a sport that she could do without using her legs. 

With her trademark discipline and determination, Shelley has become one of the world's best paddlers. She has achieved the title of World Champion in Surf Ski and Outrigger Canoeing and has represented Australia in kayaking at the Atlanta and Sydney Olympic Games.

She has two great children and lives out her dream of maintaining a happy family life while continuing to challenge herself striving for continued success on a World stage in various sports, develop herself in various areas including her knowledge as a university lecturer and educator, and continuing to inspire others to "amaze" themselves!

She now lives in Honolulu Hawaii and is passing on your knowledge through coaching paddle sports, life coaching and motivational speaking. She enjoys working with Hawaii's youth on a daily basis to see how far they can go on the world stage and loves being apart of their culture along the way!
