Hi, I’m Shelli, and I am a lot like you!
I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, and a friend trying to figure out how to navigate this wild and crazy life with less anxiety, stress and negativity and more joy, peace, love, and fulfillment.
I am a lover of science with an analytical mind that relentlessly overthinks and wants to optimize everything! I have a degree in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Tech, and I worked in engineering consulting for over 20 years.
As a young girl I was taught that I could do whatever I wanted in life, and I was determined to do just that! Before getting married and having a family, I was focused on my career and making my mark on the world. However, as my life expanded, I found that navigating work and life in a balanced way was harder than I expected. With each year and each additional responsibility, I became more and more tired, frustrated, and overwhelmed. And, on top of that, I often felt like I was losing myself. I didn’t know how to make things better and I felt stuck.
Finally, I came to the realization that something had to change. One night while everyone else was sleeping, I found myself up looking for answers. I had been following a life coach on Instagram (I love all things personal development – most likely an extension of my penchant for optimization), and I found the wisdom that she shared very helpful. I Googled “What is a life coach?” and after extensive research I had my answer. I learned that a life coach is a partner who helps people analyze their life, get clear on their values, identify limiting beliefs, and set goals to live the fullest expression of who they are. In addition to gaining an understanding of life coaching, I was also reminded of how powerful the human mind is and how mindset directly affects the way that we show up for and experience life. That night I joined a life coaching program… it changed my life!
I spent the next few months listening to group coaching calls and devouring podcasts and books by Mel Robbins, Jay Shetty, Brene Brown, Jody Moore, and many more. I discovered that my thoughts about my circumstances directly affect my feelings, emotions, behavior, and actions… and essentially become my life! This realization blew my mind! It was so empowering that I wanted everyone else to know about it too! So, I, Shelli Hopkins, the risk averse, analytically minded engineer decided to begin my journey to becoming a certified life coach through the Jay Shetty Certification School!
Through being coached and becoming certified, I have learned what it means to live a conscious life and how to live in alignment with my values. I have learned how to show up for myself and for others as my highest, truest, and most authentic self. I have found my agency, strengthened my confidence and I am able to live with more joy, love, and gratitude.
AND, I want to help you too!
I want to remind you of who you are and that you are a force in this world.
I want to help you regain joy that is often lost in the shuffle of life’s responsibilities.
I want to help you achieve your goals.
I want to help you improve your relationships, your confidence, and your physical, emotional, and mental health.
I want to help you show up as the fullest expression of YOU.
You are not alone.
My journey has prepared me to do this work.
I am lucky… and now so are you!
I will help you feel better and create a life that you love!
