Meet Shea

philanthropist • lifelong learner • entrepreneur

Hey! I'm so glad you're here. I'm Shea, co-founder of UPwords. I'm passionate about people, the outdoors, a good laugh, and cultivating a strong mindset. To me, life is filled with opportunities to learn more + push myself out of my comfort zone to become better than I was yesterday. Life is too short to take the easy route, and I love the challenge. I didn't always think that way though. I used to fear change and anything outside of my comfort zone, but affirmations have played such a monumental part in my growth and learning how to switch my approach to life. That's why UPwords means so much to me. 


As someone who knows firsthand what it is like to grow up surrounded by technology, I have found tremendous value in creating a solid self-care routine and embracing the self-love journey. Which is why “I am enough” and the power of affirmations is so incredibly close to my heart. I love finding cozy AND cute apparel with a personal meaning behind it to remind me of my worth even on the hardest days. I believe how we speak to ourselves creates the reality we live in, so it's important to speak truth and positivity into our lives. Which is why we've created Upwords to make that positivity accessible to everyone. I hope you'll love our products as much as we do, and they help you feel confident in your own skin. :)
