“During the height of Covid we were fortunate to have Kelly conduct a “stress resilience” workshop with our team. She conducted several sessions in which she first offered several assessments, the tailored her instruction to meet our needs, personalities, and particular challenges. Kelly showed incredible care, empathy and leadership to our young women. Our team was excited to have their next session, and when the workshop was concluded they- unanimously- expressed their appreciation. The skills we learned were vital in being able to navigate what has been arguably the toughest experience in these young women’s lives.
After our work with Kelly I had several of my student-athletes tell me they were about to drop out of school- due to the stress, pressures and subsequent depressions this caused them. The workshop with Kelly “kicked them into gear”. They committed to their schoolwork, their (limited) athletic activities, and I am proud to say, they all completed their semester and passed their courses. I am not sure if Kelly knows how big of an impact she made on each one of our women, but I can tell you it was phenomenal.
In addition, she continued to follow through and check in on us. Even though we were able to be back together on the court, we faced uphill challenges as a team. She reminded us of the skills we had learned, and we were able to call on those to help us navigate the unknown. We can never express or appreciation enough for what Kelly has done with us and how she has affected our lives”
“Kelly is known to our players as “The Miracle Worker!” A couple of our girls had been struggling with their confidence up to bat. At one of our tournaments Kelly pulled them aside and had a talk with them. She was able to rewire their thought process from negative to positive. From that moment on their body language changed and they were able to relax and see positive results. Kelly finds a way to connect with all athletes and in today’s world of constant pressure to perform, her craft is essential. All sports and athletes could benefit from Kelly’s program. We will be using her mentorship for years to come.”
“Working with Kelly was great for our team and myself. We had some key conversations at extremely pivotal times during our season. Having taught stress and dealing with stress for 28 years, Kelly had insights that were significant for my team and I immediately shared them in my health class. The character trait profile she uses is invaluable. It helped the entire team and gave me insights to approaches that may not work, because of our teams 5 traits. In a world where mental health is at the forefront, I believe every coach should consider implementing a programs that deals with stress, emotional resilience, and how to reduce anxiety through breathing. Our athletes need the tools to overcome failure, embarrassment and anxiety. They need to know they can do hard things and Kelly’s program provides the tools. She is a tremendous asset to player’s and coach’s success on and off the floor.”
Thanks you so much, Kelly!”
“I’ve been working with Kelly since October 2023, and she has helped me grow significantly with a few months of work. As an executive coach, Kelly provides me with an experienced, objective sounding board and acts as a guide for my professional life. Her coaching has helped me navigate challenges like advocating for my peers, improving dysfunctional company culture, addressing conflict, navigating increasingly complex responsibilities, and stepping into a management-level role. She is an empathetic, calming, intelligent coach that has helped me gain the experience and presence I need to become a more confident, more effective professional.”
“Had the pleasure of working with Kelly on two different occasions. In both instances, she served as my executive coach and was great to work with, guiding me through a structured process. Each time I discovered a lot about my own priorities, needs, and goals. I highly recommend her and would gladly work with her again.”
“I highly recommend Kelly as a facilitator. Not only does she listen, deliver and produce, but she does it all with a polished demeanor. She’s a pro. It shows in her ability to make the task at hand look easy. Her practiced professionalism comes across with just the right amount of energy and confidence. Kelly lifts the room with her can-do spirit!”
“Performing well in games used to be difficult for me because I would constantly hover over the mistake I did plays ago, which caused me to feel doubt within myself. This program helped me with that because I was able to realize that I wasn’t the only who made mistakes and only the greater people succeed because they don’t let their mistakes weigh over them.”
“With our limited time, Kelly was able to quickly provide key points of peak performance and then address specific questions our team had. She did not get bogged down in unnecessary details and kept the focus on what the team wanted to accomplish.”
“When high pressure situations occurred during my freshman year I was more prone to mistakes as I couldn’t focus and overcome the anxiety. This program has helped me become more locked in during these situations and focus simply on the next play.”
“The team interaction was helpful, it was good to lay a safe foundation for people to voice their opinions and positively set boundaries while engaging as a team.”
“I loved participating in Kelly’s course! She breaks down everything down concisely and allows room for everyone to share their opinions. I learned a ton about different ways that our bodies respond to stress and have tools to overcome them on the field and in life. Would highly recommend taking her class!”
“In identifying what we can and can’t control, Kelly elaborates on ways we can be better prepared to take on high pressure situations. With an explanation of how our brains and bodies work, she provides actions we can take to be more present and let go of the thoughts that prevent us from playing at our full potential. Highly recommend if you’re working toward playing any sport freely and having more fun.”
