Shelley Howe, MS, RD, CDN is an incredible woman who never judges anyone, is caring and motivating. I was at a point in my life where I felt so tired and unmotivated. My co-workers and friends would say “No wonder why you don’t feel well, look what you eat”. I had no clue how to change how I ate or what to prepare. I did not think I was capable of change. Until I was introduced to Shelley Howe, she has simplified what I thought would be so complicated, and has made it fun, exciting and goal oriented for me. I am going in to my 4th session and I have changed some bad eating habits that I thought would be impossible, I am losing weight each week and feel excited about this life change. She gave me my own individual plan for me and showed me how to incorporate it into my life.

Book Testimonials for “Your Best is Yet to Come”:

These troubling economic times have forced many of us to face the grim realization that there is no such thing as job security and that that no one is waiting in the wings to “bail” us out.

So when Shelley’s career stalled and she was up against insurmountable odds, rather than surrender, she chose to fight. Without hesitation, Shelley identified her skill set, realigned her system of values and forged ahead.

Her diary chronicles the inspirational story of soul searching, reinvention and rediscovery. When faced with few options, Shelley chose success! If faced with your own feelings of desperation, her journey will encourage you to pursue your dreams rather than succumb to indecision and self doubt.

As her physician, I had the opportunity to witness her transformation first hand. Her zest for life and enthusiasm toward her new career will motivate you as it has me. So like Shelley, if your path is no longer leading you to your goals, it’s time to change course and make “success” your only option.
