About Me

Life transitions can be challenging. The good news is there are things that we can do to help individuals of all ages successfully manage these life transitions.

After a 20-year corporate career, I transitioned to a career in higher education, instructing business courses. Following a desire to more fully meld my business background with higher education, I earned my Educational Leadership Ph.D. in August 2019, having researched transitions and emerging adults (think young adults), exploring how to successfully support students throughout college and early career life transitions.

Beyond pursuing a career in higher education, it is my desire to support and encourage others. In responding to this calling, I began consulting in 2013, with a rollout of a rebranded Shelly Bartosek Consulting in late 2019. But my inner voice continued speaking to me, challenging me to do more, and has begun to reveal itself beyond any dream I had previously dared to dream. In the process of embarking upon a new adventure, re-framing consultant into a facilitator, I enrolled in the Sedona Women’s Institute Facilitator Training program and renamed my consulting business to –

Beyond a career as an instructor in higher education, it is my desire to support and encourage others. In pursuit of this calling, I began consulting in 2013. But my inner voice continued speaking to me, challenging me to do more, and had revealed itself beyond any dream I had previously dared to dream. Throughout 2020, I focused on a re-framing consultant, expanding upon my passion for mentoring and nurturing others. I enrolled in the Sedona Women’s Institute Facilitator Training program and launched my personal retreat business, Circle of Self Discovery.

Circle of Self Discovery

Within this opportunity, going forward, when not in the classroom, I will be curating and delivering unique retreats. It is my hope, my desire, that my passion for travel and adventure will continue to evolve into the development of local, regional, and destination retreats — combining my love of travel and adventure more fully with what I’m being called to do – Encourage others to be their best self.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”

—Anne Frank

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

–Anthony Bourdain
