In the late 1970s, Shirley and a friend opened their own dance/exercise studio in Cranston, RI called BodyUp. They were the first exercise-to-music, female audience studio in the state, with a program fashioned after Jane Fonda’s video classes. The business took off and expanded quickly! She had a great time running the studio for about six years, then sold her half of the business to her partner, to focus on starting her family. Shirley’s children Eric and Tess were born 11 and ½ months apart, and it was during this time that she obtained her real estate license. The rest, as they say, is history!
Shirley resides in Wakefield with her husband, Nick, who painstakingly restores the interiors and wood components of classic antique automobiles. Shirley’s passion for new experience and her love of travel and culture resulted in her moving to Northern Italy with her husband for five years, where she became fluent in Italian and enjoyed all the wonderful aspects of life overseas! Shirley loves living in and working in South County, where she gets to be near her growing family!
