I AM KELLY
Business owner, Life Coach, Consultant & unshakable optimist dedicated to supporting you on your journey to empowerment and clarity !
In 2017, I was living what I thought was my best life. I was in a long-term relationship, had an amazing pack of dogs, my three businesses were going strong, and I had plenty of friends for socialization. I drank too much, was overweight, and constantly tired, but I just figured it was from trying to fit it ALL in, I wanted to work hard and enjoy every moment of my life.
In April of 2017, my doctor indicated that my thyroid was enlarged and referred me to a specialist. I immediately had a sense that my life would be full of doctors, medication and possibly surgery if I took that route, so I followed my gut and instead contacted Dr. Jason Bradley of Epic Functional Medicine Center. There I was put on a diet designed to reduce inflammation in the body and detox from sugar. Three comprehensive tests were done and the results were staggering: my adrenals were toast from pushing myself so hard during the day and partying every night for the past 15 years, my thyroid WAS abnormal but could be controlled with supplements, and I had LEAD poisoning !!!
Then, my world turned upside down. My dogs started dying, one by one. My relationship ended. Everything that defined my world was being ripped out from under me and I was turning to alcohol to cope. My life was a mess – but I took control of the three things that mattered in that whirlwind of death, loss and destruction: I completely changed my diet, I started lifting weights, and I quit drinking.
My physical transformation was almost immediate, within 21 days of changing my diet I had lost 20 pounds !! It was amazing ! I lost so much weight that I wanted to put some back on and figured that lifting weights would be the best way to go about it, so I headed to the gym. My days were glorious – I ate healthily, worked out, and was motivated. I was still drinking though and soon came to realize that I could no longer reconcile my two selves – a health conscious woman by day and a party girl by night. One day I woke from a particularly rough night, decided I was going to quit drinking for good and get control of my life. And that is exactly what I did.
I have always been very public about my personal journeys in life – whether it be physical, emotional or spiritual – and this journey was no different. I was sobering up, organizing all of the layers of my life and posting about it along the way. At some point, a friend of mine was so inspired they exclaimed “You are amazing !! You should be a life coach !!” I had absolutely no idea that the journey of becoming a life coach, learning to assist others in finding their joy and passion in life, would also end up being a journey of my own.
As I write this, I am 858 days alcohol free and have been lifting weights and eating clean for 2 ½ years. I have completed a year long program through the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC), and at 40 years old I am happier, healthier, and more on top of my life and goals than I have EVER been.
