Kelly is a caring, warm person. People find her engaging when she speaks, often with joy, passion and peacefulness.
Kelly is a very present person and listens deeply to others, often with great empathy and compassion. She is also very pragmatic and rational, and is interested in living well, here and now.
Kelly believes that we are all learning how to live in this world, and that we thrive best when we are interdependent and fully aligned with our true nature.
Over the course of her lifetime, Kelly has experienced many wonderful adventures: a great deal of formal and informal education; plenty of responsibility and personal development (nearly a decade of public service in the Canadian Forces, and creating and operating a professional counselling & consulting practice); and a whole lot of fun (playing and expressing in music and sports).
