Authentic. Creative. Sincere.

Hi! I’m Kelly.

I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m a let’s sit down and get to know each other over a cup of coffee (or better yet glass of wine) kind of gal. So please, enter this site with that in mind. Get to know me and please reach out and introduce yourself!

I’ll start. Here are a few things you might not know about me…

I thrive on empowering people and am strangely energized when I get to speak in front of a group. College students, women, parents, rocket scientists, childcare providers, worship leaders, grandmothers…I’m not picky. The more unique and wonky you are, the better we’ll get along. We all have areas where we need support and teamwork and a cheerleader along the way. Consider me your own personal cheerleader. (Just don’t ask me to do a herkie!) I’m all about bringing people together to identify your inner superpowers and share your sparkle with others.

Scrabble is my jam! I love words. To read them. To write them. To speak them. I believe words can be life-giving. They can be a soothing balm, a thrust of encouragement, a tickle of comic relief, a powerful motivator, a force of solidarity, and a comfortable place to rest. I love that I get to make my living with words and pray to make each one count.

I am grateful for the opportunity I have to write and speak with you and for you. Your successes matter to me. Your heart matters to me, too. I want to do my part in encouraging and celebrating you—the authentic you. So don’t worry about putting on airs or only bringing your Insta-worthy image to the table. I may just show up in my threadbare flannel pajamas without my makeup on. That’s the kind of friends we can be, back door friends who won’t judge the dust bunnies in the corner or the piles of laundry waiting to be folded. Like I said at the beginning, we’re just meeting for coffee. I’m excited to get to know you!

Vision and Values

My vision is driven by my desire to empower and improve the lives of others, starting with the basics of healthy communication, positivity and making intentional choices. I help people grow in their personal and professional lives by breaking strategies down into bite-sized pieces that are real, doable and effective.

  • Authenticity—let’s get real and honor what makes you unique
  • Build Tribes—strong relationships drive success
  • Give Grace—forget perfection and find perspective
  • Professional Growth—add value to your organization
  • Personal Growth—nurture emotional intelligence, self-awareness and confidence
