Shanel Cooper-Sykes is a twenty-something, self-taught Renaissance woman. She is a certified life-style coach, professional make-up artist, speaker and a magnificent cook. Stilettos in the Kitchen was born when she realized her gift of domestication, independence and fabulousness that was uncommon for average young women to possess. With book shelves lined with “I am woman hear me roar” books, Shanel decided to combine her coaching skills, love for cooking and beauty expertise to write a book that fills, and bridges, a generational gap in women’s empowerment books. Shanel shares her personal stories and passed down mother wit in a sassy in your face style to spread a new vision of an empowered woman. Shanel prides herself on being what she calls an extraordinary cook- not a chef! She believes her purpose in life is to share her gifts to motivate those who want to live a fierce and fabulous life.
