“Ten times a day something happens to me like this — some strengthening throb of amazement — some good sweet empathic ping and swell. This is the first, the wildest and the wisest thing I know: that the soul exists and is built entirely out of attentiveness.”

— Mary Oliver

Meet Shelly

Functional Nutrition Consultant & Natural Foods Culinary Instructor

Shelly Rose founded Pure Roots Nutrition in 2011, a company dedicated to helping people implement a more joy-filled, vibrant life through real food, movement, stress relief, meaningful connection, purpose, time spent in nature, and a good night’s sleep.

After earning a Nutrition and Culinary Arts bachelor’s degree from leading natural health institute Bastyr University, she attended Quillisascut’s Sustainable Kitchen Farm Culinary School, completed an internship at Seattle’s FareStart, and volunteered with PCC Natural Markets and The Root Connection Farm. She’s currently a candidate for her CNS.

She has worked in medical practices alongside Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) specializing in food sensitivities, chronic conditions, and incorporating meal plans, culinary skills, and lifestyle changes into patient care plans. While working independently today, Shelly still actively partners in client/patient care with like-minded integrative, functional, and naturopathic medicine healthcare providers. Above all, Shelly provides ongoing accountability, structure, guidance, problem-solving, and the encouragement needed to implement on your plan, realize results, and sustain healthy habits to keep them.

Areas of specialty: disease prevention, autoimmunity, nervous system regulation, mind-body medicine, gut health, neuro care, and recovery.

When Shelly isn’t teaching, you’ll likely find her traveling, on her yoga mat, practicing breath-based meditation, and almost always outside: hiking, camping, trail running, paddling, mountain biking, or just joyriding in search of picnic/outdoor book nooks along the river. She’s happiest with a warm drink in hand, listening to piano, reading the latest health research, or napping in a hammock.

“The earth is full of thresholds where beauty awaits the wonder of our gaze.”
