Setting a Healthy Example for Little Girls


This Run Lift Mom Podcast Episode is an interview with Shelley Henderson, pediatric ER nurse, fire wife, Street Parking Enthusiast, and Mom of multiples.

Who is Shelley?

Shelley self describes as a Jesus lover, girl mom to the max, twin mama plus one, ages 5 & 2, a pediatric ER nurse, fire wife, a die hard street parking member, fitness guru.

She says she is just trying to motivate and encourage people to be their best selves and love the journey they’re on. She holds a BSN with all the certs to go along with being a trauma nurse as well as a Trauma Nurse Leader on my unit.

As a former crossfit coach that used to have a L1 (level 1) certification before kids, she has never been an athlete, just an everyday person trying to live a healthy consistent lifestyle so she can keep up with her 3 girls.

Connect with Shelley

me consistency and faith is the key to life, not just in fitness, but in raising your children, showing up to work, showing up for people in your life, etc. I think everyone has their own struggles and comparing lives is hard for women all around us. Sharing in your ups and downs helps connect people and it makes you a real person. My faith carries me through and keeps me grounded in all aspects of my life. Lastly you do not have to be a competitive athlete to be in shape.
