Why Kelly?

Kelly is a gifted speaker whose heart-centered message connects powerfully with her audience.

Passionate Author, Speaker, Coach

KellyRedScarfKelly’s passion for helping people reach their highest potential stems from a health crisis that derailed her life and career. Instead of allowing the crisis to undermine her life purpose, she used it to set her on a new path as a licensed therapist. What Kelly learned became her platform for encouraging others to achieve personal and professional growth through life’s lessons. Many people say to “follow your heart,” but most of us need help to make that practical. In Kelly’s book and signature message, Heart Lessons, she provides practical tools for achieving a healthy life— emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. You can learn to live your life in 3d, and Detect, Define, and Determine to follow your heart’s desire! Kelly brings a wealth of education and business experience to her messages.


Kelly is a licensed marriage and family therapist with a master’s degree in psychology, and a bachelor’s degree in social science with an emphasis in organizational leadership. She also graduated from an MBA-style broadcast leadership program with the National Association of Broadcasters.


A powerful communicator and experienced business woman, Kelly spent 30 years in radio as an on-air personality, an advertising and marketing executive, a station owner, and consultant. She continues to serve the broadcast industry as a consultant, podcaster, and contributor to online publications, blogs and video programs.
