Shelly Ryan

Chief Career and Training Officer

Shelly’s passion and commitment to making a difference in people’s lives, her insight and her ability to inspire others makes Shelly a natural for this WHEN® work.  She uses this as the foundation for guiding people towards discovering what they would love to have in their life—professionally and personally.  She then helps them make it happen!  Her clients have found new jobs, started their own businesses, gotten promotions, developed strong communication skills, built solid working relationships, and found ways to love their current job (even when they didn’t before!)

Shelly brings over thirty years of education, professional and personal experiences to WHEN. Shelly earned her Life Coach Certification from Coach Training Alliance in 2007.  She is also licensed and certified as a New Life Story Coach.  She’s taken additional coursework in group coaching and coaching career transitions and has completed Landmark Education’s Curriculum for Living.  Shelly holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts Degree in Student Personnel Administration and Counseling.

As a seasoned speaker and trainer, Shelly has prepared and presented hundreds of workshops, trainings, and speaking engagements to diverse audiences both nationally and internationally covering a wide variety of topics.  Most recently her workshops include Living a Life You Love, Meditation Exploration, and How Did I End Up Here?  Her enthusiastic, participatory, and humorous speaking style engages audiences.

Shelly lives in Phoenix with her husband, Sam. They both enjoy traveling, movies, music, and yoga (clarification—Sam tolerates yoga—Shelly loves it!)

What Find Your WHEN® means to me:

“It is an opportunity to deliberately create a life you love rather than letting life just happen to you. I experience my WHEN through leading by example (I truly love my life!) and sharing this with others so they, too, can create a life they love!”
