  • Shellie has been a full-time writer for 22 years.
  • She's a two-time published author, having released "Inside of Me: Lessons of Lust, Love and Redemption" and "Pure Heart: A Woman's Guide to Sexual Integrity."
  • Shellie is a marriage life coach and doula.


Shellie's byline has appeared in well over five dozen publications to date. Some of them include xoNecole, Naturally Curly, Your Tango, The Good Men Project, Women's Health & Fitness, Easy Weddings, Simply Bridal, Marriage, Little Things, She Knows, Love Live Health, and Sister 2 Sister, just to name a few. Shellie has also served as an editorial consultant for a local women's magazine, a feature columnist for a now defunct entertainment weekly offshoot of The Tennessean (in Nashville, TN), a teen mom director for the local chapter of a national non-profit, and a feature writer and touring speaker for an organization that works with sex addiction. When she's not writing about relationships, sex, or health, Shellie is coaching engaged or married couples or serving as a doula, especially to teen moms.


Shellie attended MTSU for four years, studying journalism and African American Studies. While she did not complete her degree, the running joke is: "She has earned a PhD in life!"
