About Shelly

Shelly L. Brooks is a mother, the author of “These Shoes Hurt My Feet” and a motivational speaker.  She passionately inspires, motivates and helps empower women to live with purpose, discover their passion, and fulfill their dreams.  She has over 20 years of speaking and training experience in her professional career and collaborated those skills with her passion into motivational speaking. 

Her passion for helping others heal and recover from broken relationship goes beyond the surface of helping our current generation of adults; it extends to our future generations. She strongly advocates changing the negative images and examples our children see in relationships to happy, loving, caring and respectful relationships, thus breaking the painful cycle we unconsciously create and pass on to our children.

She currently resides in the Washington Metropolitan area where she has a local relationship recovery peer support group.
