Leader, Speaker, Coach, Fur Mom and Tennis Junkie

 
KellyAfter an extremely successful corporate career as a brand strategist and publicist, and launching and running two well-known business and marketing coaching companies, Kelly began to study leadership after asking her industry, “Where are all the female leaders?”

Frustrated by the lack of leadership development programs available that address the specific needs of conscious women entrepreneurs, Kelly made it her mission to serve this market and created The Women’s Leadership Academy.

To Kelly, her business is simply an expression of her gifts – and her platform an expression of her life purpose and mission to serve the world. She believes this is true for everyone.

With the accomplishments Kelly has achieved, one might think that she is a guru or a diva, however quite the opposite is true. She is down to earth, authentic and transparent about the successes and failures in her life and career. On the weekends you’ll find Kelly kicking off the Louis Vuitton’s and throwing on a pair of yoga pants to walk her three fur-babies, or flowing her way through a vinyasa yoga class. She can also be found on the tennis court working her way to Wimbledon.
