    Hello everyone and thank you for continuing to listen to us here at the H.E.R! Podcast. What does clarity mean to you? Today, we had the pleasure of speaking with Kari Hurd on the topic of developing clarity of vision and the importance of finding EPIC Clarity. Everything begins with clarity. As we continually evolve, we are finding ourselves going through the process of seeking clarity. We are tapping into the possibilities and daring to dream and be more clear with our dreams and what we want but that takes work. Kari takes us through some of her techniques and ways she helps women like us seeking clarity to live a life that’s more than just enduring “FINE” because we all deserve a life that is EPIC!

She had all of the things that were supposed to have made her happy. After a divorce, fifteen years as a single mom, a second failed relationship, some serious introspection, healing and bravery she’s learned to search for happiness within herself instead of looking to others for guidance.

    After 22 years as a public school teacher, she is a motivational speaker and 1:1 coach, using her experiences to help other women face their stories and fears so that they can live as their truest, most authentic self and be the woman they WANT to be, not the one they feel they NEED to be.

    Episode 25: Finding Oneself Through Sobriety, Witchcraft, and a Motorcycle, An Interview with Shelley Wells

    Ahhhh…. Is anyone else experiencing major shifts these days? Maybe it’s Spring… maybe it’s the light at the end of the tunnel… whatever it is.. There’s something in the air…. And it feels tangible, like a deep stirring within. I’m seeing the first buds and blossoms of spring blooming…. California’s Daylight Savings started on Sunday… change is in the air…

    Which brings me to today’s guest. Elika and and I had a blast interviewing Shelley Wells, Licensed Esthetician and Owner of SAP Skin CAre & makeup artistry. Today’s episode takes a dive into the nature and essence of the wild feminine…  and we discover that when we aren’t afraid to sit with the most untame aspects of ourselves, we find the deepest authentic and sincere connection to self which in turn offers us healing as well as offers a multitude of worthwhile gifts and blessings that bring richness to our lives. Shelley is amazing… and her story is one that inspires us to pause… make space for all of ourselves… become our own best friend… and experience the abundance that flows in our lives when we love ourselves unconditionally… You’ll be glad you tuned in to today’s interview with Shelley on “Finding Oneself Through Sobriety, Witchcraft, and a Motorcycle.”

    To learn more about or connect with Shelley Wells:

    Shelley Wells is the Owner and Licensed Esthetician at SAP Skin Care & Makeup Artistry. She has been an Esthetician for over 5 years and started her own business shortly after she received her license.  Though she loves all things aesthetics, her passion lies in skin care. She was a waitress for about 15 years and wanted to start a career and make a change.  An opportunity presented itself for a receptionist position at Pure Makeup in Eureka. Shelley quickly fell In love with everything an Esthetician does, especially makeup and skin care. She had to work 3 part time jobs to get through school and pay rent and take care of her daughter but she was driven and desperately wanted this. She passed her exams and received her license in 2016 and soon after started her own business in a small room in the back of Siana Spa in Arcata. It was tough being on her own.

    She had just opened a new location in Arcata when Covid hit and she had to close. She had been dreaming of creating her own skin care line and had an amazing formulator that she was working with and using her plant based formulas in her facials and on her own skin with amazing results. It is super important to Shelley that she promotes natural plant based products because so few of them out there are as natural as they advertise. 

    She loves natural plant-based ingredients and products. She wanted to create something that would spark a self care ritual that anyone can easily do at home while at the same time making sure it is safe and potent. 

    A fun fact is that Shelley rides a  motorcycle and joined an all women’s riding group called The Litas.  In the rare free time she has, she loves to take a bath, do tarot, and read a good book. She is currently reading The Mists of Avalon.
