Based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Going after your dreams and goals can be intimidating but you don't have to go it alone. Whether you need someone to lend an ear or need a kick in the pants, it just so happens, that those areas are my specialties. I assist clients with discovering & clarifying goals, identifying obstacles and creating plans to help achieve what it is they're hoping to. Holding them accountable to making progress is also a huge part of the process. I've worked with individuals on achieving their dreams both professionally and personally. 

If you're ready to make change, I can help in a variety of ways. 

One time engagements, daily check ins or ongoing sessions are all possibilities. Reach out and we'll take it from there.

Kelly has spent her career helping people become better versions of themselves. Coaching, training, recruiting – if you name it in the world of HR, she’s done it in a variety of industries ranging from advertising, behavioral health to tourism and more. She launched her coaching practice in 2009 and has since guided individuals to achieve dreams in all areas of their lives. To Kelly, there's nothing quite so rewarding as seeing people become who they were always meant to be and knowing that she had a part in getting them there. 

Kelly is a professional coach certified by the International Coach Federation who trained at the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. Kelly is a graduate of LaSalle University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, which has been a great help in figuring out why people are occasionally a little bit….eccentric. Outside of pushing to make people and organizations better, Kelly spends most of her time marathoning Netflix programming with her mutt, Dexter.   



Client Reviews

I came to Kelly with the problem of having too many goals, which overwhelmed and ultimately prevented me from accomplishing anything. With Kelly’s help, we’ve created realistic timelines and priorities so I’ve been able to stay on track and actually see my thoughts come to fruition. In addition to providing the guidance I so desperately needed, Kelly is one of those rare people to whom you feel you can spill your soul. She listens deeply and is dedicated to helping you be the best you can — no matter how you feel in the moment. Kelly also has a way of reminding you that you do indeed rock and are worthwhile, without being too pushy. Kelly is such a badass, in the sweetest possible way. I’m so honored to have her as a mentor and a dream manager. Thank you!

Kelly has helped me realize I can really (really) write. Like, for real. In real life, about real life. She’s helped me find my actual voice and set me on a path towards writing a book, and towards finding blogs to pitch with stories about my own personal mishigos. She keeps me on track, sets goals, and finds ways to push me forward, without being pushy about pushing me forward. She’s an ambassador, a coach, a therapist, a teacher and a mentor. And most importantly, she’s become a true friend through all of this. I recommend partnering with her for coaching and letting her help you explore...and discover....what you can do, together.

When I was looking for advice on how to move forward with my career, a friend kept encouraging me to reach out to Kelly, knowing that she always has a fantastic perspective and would be able to offer advice that is helpful yet also manageable. I’m so glad I met with her! She was able to take all of the conflicting thoughts I had about how to proceed and provided me with ways to organize my options and goals. It helped me to feel confident about taking next steps. Working with Kelly as a coach will be an asset to anyone determined to achieve their goals.
