My passion is helping busy, stressed women say bye-bye to stress and hello and to a life of peace, health, happiness, and success. 

Feeling stressed leaves us plodding through life distracted and exhausted.

Coaching and helping women be fully present in their relationships, career, health, and spirituality, while feeling calm and peaceful, takes the power away from stress. Stress no longer rules our thoughts, time, and energy.

When we decide to stop being stressed, we can get curious about how stress is showing up in our daily lives. We can assess how it’s affecting our health, weight, self-care, relationships, career, finances, and spiritual growth.

Let’s face it, out culture is obsessed with being over-scheduled, stressed out, and “a hot mess.” We go through life willingly distracted, preoccupied, and absorbed with stress, anxiety, or overwhelm.

When we step away from the notion of having to live a life of stress, we gain an abundant amount of mental, physical, and emotional energy!

The energy we gain can be used to be fully present in life and to fulfill our calling and life-long dreams! What would it look like to trade in stress for peace and harmony while achieving your goals and dreams?

Currently my workshops and talks include topics such as The Mess of Stress, Kick the Sugar Habit, Managing Healthy Boundaries, and The 5 Pillars of Health. Speaking and educating members of the community is a key component of my work. I partner with Fearless Women, River Towne Family Chiropractic, OsteoStrong, and Partners in Excellence, LLC to bring awareness and strategies for healthy living.

“Going through the 90-Day Total Transformation program with Kelli as my coach was revolutionary and the most nourishing thing I have ever done for myself! Her unique approach was nothing like the other programs I’ve tried in the past. I thought she was just going to tell me what to eat, how much to eat, and how to drum up more willpower. What I got instead was much deeper and more significant to my overall life. Willpower was not needed to be successful.
In 90 days, I was able to lose weight, gain energy, develop a new perspective around food without restriction or a diet, gain confidence, start a self-care practice, increase my self-esteem, change my negative self-talk to positive self-talk, improve my relationship with my kids, and increase my self-worth.
Working with Kelli is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I will forever be grateful to her for my TOTAL TRANSFORMATION!”

– Celisia

Working with Kelli in the 90-Day Hello Peace Transformation program has allowed me to reset from a life consumed and controlled by stress to a life where I’m learning and growing every day. The small instrumental changes I’ve made are making a HUGE impact in my everyday life. I am healthier physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. 

      Now, I am able to…

      * stay calm

      * manage stress in appropriate ways 

      * be more productive

      * choose carefully what is worth my time and what is not

      * constantly complete routine tasks so my household runs more efficiently 

      * better care for my mind, body, and spirit

For years, my life felt like I would surface from insane stress, gasp for breath, and immediately be pulled back under into more stress. Now, I’m learning to swim with my head above water with a calm, steady and empowered stroke.
