Upon completion of medical school, Shelly was challenged with a choice: continue with medical care (treating disease) or health care (treating the human and preventing disease). With an MD, she earned a joint Masters in Public Health and along with her lifelong love of fitness and athletics, healthcare and prevention was the clear choice.
Shelly is a full-time resident in the Punta Mita area, and owns a fitness business, Mexifit. Shelly is also involved with SayulitAnimals in providing free spay/neuter clinics in the north bay area, along with animal adoption and care.
Shelly has a BS from Johns Hopkins, MD and MPH from Northwestern University Medical School, Certified Personal Fitness Trainer. Her interests include Swimming, Dogs & Animal Rescue, Sunset Walks, and Child Welfare/Education.
