We met once, I attended one of your workshops at JMSB and it was about how to create a powerful LinkedIn profile 🙂 it was very useful for a new migrant who was trying to re-start her career while re-starting her life from zero, and finally succeeded.
Shelly worked with me as a Social Media Strategist for my new business, 1769 Distillery, helping to set up the company LinkedIn page and develop social media marketing strategy. She is easy to work with, upbeat, positive and provides clients with a lot of current and relevant material. I highly recommend Shelly as a social media strategist for both individual and corporate needs.
Shelly quickly and clearly showed me how I wasn’t nearly maximizing the power of LinkedIn’s software, algorithms, etc. She provided precise instructions as to how I could improve my personal profile, my (previously non-existent) company profile, and my actual networking strategies. You simply cannot go wrong with Shelly – she will make your LinkedIn presence stronger, guaranteed!
Working with Shelly was mind blowing. I was very impressed with how quickly she was able to target my exact needs and give me step by step strategy on how to create an impactful profile that speaks directly to my ideal clientele as well as connect with the key influencers in my field. She offers phenomenal insight and is 110% commitment to the success of her clients. Shelly is a star… a must hire!

She takes her time to connect with participants throughout the session to ensure an in depth understanding, and provides hands on tips and tools for all levels of LinkedIn users!
Professional, funny and warm- Shelly is our go to person for helping our clients “Connect for Real”!
She is dedicated in helping others succeed, in fact, it one of her passions. Shelly has coached many students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. She has led a number of valubale and progressive group training workshops including a Leveraging LinkedIn Workshop for our EMBA program. Shelly’s approach is open and interactive. Working with others and equipping them with the skill sets and knowledge to grow to greater heights is her motivation. She is disciplined, driven, honest and always cheerful and I highly recommend her!
