About

Meet Kelli…

I work privately with high achieving business owners and those in management roles to help you create more trust and confidence in who you are, so you can stop questioning your path, thrive in leadership, and positively impact your work, relationships and life.

In 2015, I left a seventeen-year career in natural foods. At the time, I was running a $34M organization.

I loved the work, I just didn’t love who I was in the role. I felt totally misaligned.

When you’re soulful and intuitive, it’s super challenging to stick around in an energy that doesn’t resonate.

When I found out I had three fibroid tumors growing on my uterus, I knew I was done. I made a lot of personal sacrifices in my career, but my health was the line I wouldn’t cross.

I also couldn’t ignore the fact that the universe was making it abundantly clear I was no longer where I was meant to be – I had to listen. I resigned from the position.

The next few years were a time of immense healing and change. I wasn’t aware that eighteen months after I left my job, I’d leave my marriage and a business I co-owned to walk away from everything.

I moved out of the United States to Mexico … something was missing, I had to find out what it was.

I won’t keep you in suspense … the missing piece was a deep connection with myself. I lost who I was in my career. I knew I had to find my way back.

I spent two years working remotely with clients and traveling the globe on a healing and soul-aligning journey before I returned to the United States to continue my work with high-achieving leaders.

As I was doing deep coaching work with clients, they were originally coming to me for “purpose work,” feeling like their work wasn’t aligned with who they are.

They were also struggling with self-worth, overcompensating, trying to do everything perfectly, pushing themselves, over-controlling, fear of letting go, self-sabotage, fear of being seen, mild to debilitating performance anxiety and people-pleasing. It sounded a lot like “imposter syndrome”, but as we did work around that, it wasn’t completely resolved. I had to look for the deeper cause – the core issue.

In my work and research, I discovered that what’s keeping talented, heart-felt high achievers from thriving in the leadership roles they were born to succeed in isn’t “imposter syndrome”: it’s deeper wounds around shame, judgement, and criticism that are linked to hidden blocks and unhealed negative experiences from their past.

Things like bullying, neglect, abuse or overbearing parents can create a confidence-destroying feeling of never being enough.

What I found working with clients is that no matter where you graduated from, what your title is, or how hard you’ve worked to get where you are, there’s a level of success that reveals core wounds that perpetuate a story that you’re not good enough.

You end up pushing yourself through everything, because that’s how you’ve learned to get ahead – but that’s a clear path to burnout.

The work we do opens your heart, connects you to who you truly are, and guides you back to yourself and what truly matters in your soul.

There’s a direct link from the requirement to show up visibly in your role to feeling like you’re not worthy of the title, money, or success.

The core wounds can’t be seen, but the filter they cause you to view yourself and the world through can be layered into the fiber of your very being in harmful and frustrating ways. 

Through our work …

  • your confidence is restored
  • you trust your inner guidance
  • you show up authentically
  • you feel more like yourself than ever before.
  • Work stops depleting your very being and becomes a thing that gives your life deep meaning and purpose.

I combine my business background with decades of study in spiritual expansion and self-mastery. I’m certified in Leadership Coaching, Polarity Therapy, Emotional + Energetic Clearing, Space + Property Clearing, Cord Cutting, Quantum Field Healing and reading the Akashic Records. Through these tools, I lead clients on a bold journey of self-discovery and clarity. 

I live full time in a Tiny House on Wheels in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California, with my cat that acts like a dog. I work virtually with clients from all over the world through private coaching, group programs, and in-person Sacred Soul Journey Retreats.

When I’m not working you can find me planning my next adventure, hiking in the mountains, hanging out with trees, soaking in hot springs, nurturing my obsession with finding amazing second-hand clothing, and cooking dinner for friends.

I’ve been featured in MindBodyGreen, Fierce CEO, Bustle, BestLife, CBNation, Washington Magazine, International Living, and as a guest on radio and podcasts, including: The Truth Prescription Podcast, Technology for Mindfulness, WOW FM 100.5, Talk with Francesca, Dr. Ali Griffith Show, LocoGringo and more.
