Let's make work awesome.

Coach. Career Navigator. Ass Kicker.



Change is possible. Do the work. 

Here’s the thing. People spend most of their lives at work. Often feeling stuck, frustrated and stressed out. They don’t understand why they’re doing what they’re doing or what impact it has. And all of that leaves them feeling drained. And their employers don’t get why the biz isn’t booming. Or why people are leaving. Most of us want to stop this insanity but are stuck on where to begin. It starts with remembering that we’re human. I work with businesses (& the human beings they employ) who are looking to change the game and define success not only by the numbers but by developing and enhancing lives.


Work doesn’t have to be a four letter word.

In need of inspiration? Look no further. 



  • I have always been skeptical of career coaches, but I took a chance and reached out to Kelly at a pivotal point in my career. It was truly one of those life-changing moments. Kelly helped me discover what was staring me right in the face, and provided guidance to achieve my goals. She did this with humor and grace; she makes it all look so easy. I'd gladly recommend Kelly to anyone who is looking to examine their career path and/or goals.

  • I knew that I was ready for a career change but had absolutely no idea how to go about it. I hadn’t looked for a new job in over 20 years. The rules had changed, and I was going to need help to navigate today’s job market. More daunting – I was trying to switch industries at the same time. I was looking for a coach to help me with my job search. I thought that I just needed help sprucing up my resume or editing my LinkedIn profile. What I found in Kelly went far beyond. Kelly not only helped me to understand the new rules, she helped me to truly understand what was most important to me and what I really wanted in a new role. She embodies the best that a coach can be – she is a sounding board, cheerleader, mentor, and that person that you need to hold up the mirror. More than simply providing me a road map, Kelly became a guide star. By keeping me pointed in the right direction, she helped me to land my ideal role.
