“Kelly was a great listener, kept me on track when I went off the rails or on a tangent (which I have a tendency to do), and always brought me back to my original goals and put things in context.”

— C.C., Partner, Construction

Kelly is a coach, learning and talent strategist and facilitator with global experience in more than 20 countries, with individuals and organizations across industries and sectors, and nearly a decade of experience at McKinsey & Company.

Kelly’s work as a coach is to help individuals make a change of some sort. You can expect a keen listener who is non-judgmental while challenging you to be the best version of yourself. Kelly wants the best for her clients and herself, and shows up honoring her values of authenticity, curiosity, integrity and self-development. Kelly’s broad understanding of business needs, cultural differences, and the global marketplace aid her in developing great leaders and teams. Her global work experience brings an array of resources and ideas to support you on your journey.

Kelly loves being outside hiking, cycling, and skiing. Travelling and photography are passions of hers — ask her about the 47 countries she has visited. Kelly co-wrote Fearless Feedback for leadership coaches to leverage stakeholder feedback interviews in coaching engagements.
