An advocate for self-care. A guide toward sustainable lifestyle improvements through habit, behavior, and ritual changes. A positive, hopeful, objective source of support. My purpose is to help you arrive at a more simple, clear, intentioned, skillful, uplifted, happier, lighter, exciting, energized life full of peace, joy, wellbeing, and longevity.
What I do as a Personal Development Coach
Most people have a general understanding about eating well, exercising, getting enough sleep and being mindful. However, many still need some assistance with achieving and maintaining their desired healthy lifestyle. Maybe you’re in need of an accountability partner, need to learn more about how to nourish your body and soul, or you have a particular health issue or work-related stress to deal with. Wherever you are on your journey, I’ll meet you and help you discover and create your optimal health and energized life. My favorite thing is to end a session with a client smiling because he/she is feeling lighter and inspired to make changes to create the life they desire.
I take a holistic approach addressing concerns regarding mind, body and spirit. I help you discover and implement the changes that will have the biggest impact on your wellness, self-care and overall satisfaction with your life.
I’m trained as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and a mentor in The Happy Body system. Thinking I was pretty healthy, I had to reassess during the recovery of my health after breast cancer. I also have had, and continue to have, “life experiences” that encourage me to learn and grow. Through the desire for longevity, self-discipline and optimal health, I have accumulated a wide range of knowledge and experiences that I use to inspire people to create a youthful, vibrant, thriving, high-functioning life.

Areas I've helped clients in:
I started working with Kelle just over 6 weeks ago. We began with a wellness tune-up and talked about where I’m at in terms of my health and wellbeing as well as where I’d like to get to.
Kelle helped me to think about my goals in a way that suited me. She gave me suggestions that fit with my lifestyle and work and with what I was already doing with my exercise and eating.
If you would like some support to achieve your health and wellness goals, Kelle is the person to get in touch with! It is so great working with Kelle. I feel absolutely no judgement; she actively celebrates my wins with me; and gives me ideas that will support me to achieve my goals. I am so glad I chose to work with Kelle. She is genuine, professional, enthusiastic, and fun!

When I began my conversations with Kelle my company was amid a major pivot, I had been working all my off days to help my wife with her business, and my 20+ year gym routine had been decimated by the pandemic. I had been deferring dietary and lifestyle changes until a time I realized would never come.
Out of the gate Kelle's presence evoked a sense of calm energy coupled with holistic thoughtfulness. In just one session Kelle was able to identify my primary issues and propose accessible solutions.
I was impressed with how Kelle was able to make personalized connections between gratitude, meditation, nutrition, exercise, and rest. I learned how subtle changes could yield amplified results. Best of all Kelle's ideas are pragmatic and sustainable. The only side effect was dropping 15lbs which I've kept it off two months and counting!
Kelle has been an excellent soundboard for me. She speaks from her experiences and offers new and uplifting perspectives to the challenges I've been facing. This has helped me reframe my old 'stories' so that I can find empowering ways to move past my challenges. She is nonjudgemental and incredibly supportive.
I feel very fortunate to have been introduced to Kelle.
