Your facilitators:


selfie-website-small-copyKelly worked in alternative education for 18 years, earning her teaching credentials in 2000.  After running a one-room schoolhouse in Mount Shasta, CA for three years, she spent 15 years working as an educational facilitator for an independent study charter school. There she collaborated with families, teachers, and students to create customized homeschool educational plans.  Throughout her career, she has counseled many families and teens through a variety of life challenges, as well as raising two young men as a single parent.  Kelly is now taking those skills and applying them to grief work & facilitating retreats.

For the last 3 years, she created and managed Crossroads as a Pacific Crest Trail Hikers’ Hostel. Kelly is also trained in Principle-Based Partner Yoga and Yin Yoga. She has taught at the Northern California Women’s’ Symposium for over 15 years and helped lead grief retreats.

She is passionate about reminding people to keep their child~heart alive through sacred silliness, to inspire people to trust their hearts and live their dreams, and to be a reminder of the sacred and holding nature in reverence through her way of being and living. She consistently co-creates experiences within her communities and in her work in the world that nurtures healing, play, gratitude, and sacredness.

Kelly focuses on guiding her clients back to a state of thriving, rather than merely surviving. Kelly's personal journey through trauma and loss has led her to share her outside-the-box thinking and approaches with others who desire effective and innovative healing techniques. She is joyfully committed to helping others heal and renew.
