A Personal Note From Kelly
Hi. Welcome to my site. Glad you're here. It means our paths were destined to cross. No matter what program I create for you, my goal is the same - to make you laugh A LOT, make you feel valued, challenge you to think a little differently, and leave you better than I found you. My methods are a little wacky, I'll give you that. It's just that I like to shake things up a little. If I'm going to talk about having the courage to be different, then I think I should go first.
I love using stories to teach. Not just because they are entertaining and engaging and make people feel things, but because they are the very tool I use to connect, teach, and inspire. Science has proven that our brains are wired to learn through story, not data. Information can't move people to action. But story can. It's my gift. It's my secret weapon. And soon it will be yours. Thanks for visiting, and until we meet again, stay on the funny side!

I just finished reading the second set of evaluations (week two) and just like week one, the attendees found you to be amazing and simply the highlight of the convention. Time and time again the forms listed you or things you said as the most important take away they had from the convention. As a speaker, one does well if they can get people to remember a few things they say. But, if one can change a life through a message, there is no higher praise than that. Thanks for being a part of our program. Best wishes in all your future activities. You have a gift!
Chairman & CEO | Auto-Owners Insurance
Huge thanks for your stupendous presentation at APA's 34th Annual Congress! I had already heard you were an amazing humorist, and you exceeded my expectations. "Who Hijacked My Fairy Tale" was masterfully crafted and outrageously entertaining. In the midst of the laughter, there was a subtle yet poignant grace through your vivid characters. You are an artful storyteller! APA's members were mesmerized as you took over 2000 people on a journey, which was more relevant to our theme than I could have imagined. We look forward to having you back in the near future!
American Payroll Association
Kelly did her research and delivered a targeted message to our scientists and engineers that had us laughing (really hard!) and thinking while totally mesmerized. The “formula” she developed will provide us a guidepost for crafting our own compelling messages going forward. I keep getting stopped in the hallway by people who attended wanting to thank the team for bringing her in. The timing was perfect. We really needed to let loose and laugh. Kelly made a wonderful impression.

Amway World Headquarters
Thank you Kelly for a very inspirational, funny, and practical talk. You have kick started something in our organization that will make a profound difference in our culture.
