Trusted Advisor Testimonials

Probably the most beneficial thing in working with Kelli has been that I’ve had someone I trust/respect who I share similar belief system with to touch bases with as a high-level thinker/conspirer and ‘outside eye’. I have also appreciated and benefited from the accountability structure she has created for me. I’m noticing time more (valuing it more, enjoying it more, worrying about it less, but also being cognizant of using it well) as a result. I’m acutely aware of the progress that I’ve made in personal and professional growth as a result of our work, and am grateful for the partnerships and connections I’ve made courtesy of Kelli’s intros that are (and will be) valuable to me in future ventures and endeavors.”

“I engaged Kelli during a pivotal time during my career, and I cannot imagine having navigated so many storms without her unwavering support and guidance.  She helped me refind my conviction and “use my power” as I moved from a large corporate role to a CEO role.  During each of our sessions she would offer great ideas to stay ahead of the curve and in control of my story and messaging. She pushed me further and higher than anyone I’ve ever worked with before.  For anyone at a crossroads or in need of a career boost, Kelli is unparalleled.  I value her real world perspective and because she comes from direct experience her advice is relevant, actionable and effective.  I wouldn’t be where I am now without Kelli’s support!”

Kelli’s guidance has showed me creative and inspired possibilities I’d never have considered to take my brand/presence to the national stage as a political analyst and commentator. As importantly, she’s taught me to believe in myself, how to get out of my own way, and to think and act on a grander scale. She’s opened doors to opportunities and influencers for me that I never dreamed I could engage with & I’m truly grateful.”

Kelli is an incredible strategic partner for anyone who wants to embark on a new career &/or life path — or significantly redesign their existing one. She believes in your talents but she also can see blind spots or hidden mis-perceptions that may be holding you back. Kelli helped me to gain confidence in myself and together we created a strategy that could bring feasible results as I move from being a consultant to a coach. Her approach with me was to tap into my growth mindset and to set up a plan to come up with the results by supporting key milestones and celebrating achievements. Kelli is a fun and enjoyable person to work with. She is truly a trusted partner for someone who wants to reach their next level of personal and professional mastery.”
