Just wanted to thank you for being such a wonderful person and teacher! As my Health Coach you have taught me to understand food and emotion, listening to what the body is saying, and incorporating more raw food into my daily diet. Especially green juice!! I feel better about myself and what I'm doing for my body and what I'm teaching my son. I love your recipe book, "Homegrown," so good! This hasn't been a journey just about food for me, but life and living the best I can. Thank you for having me try foods I never have before! It’s been a wonderful learning experience and I thank you for that!

Kelly is one of those rare people, whom you will remember for a long time. When my daughter was diagnosed with a chronic health condition and was fighting to regain her health after missing six months of school, Kelly created a Pilate's based program which helped restore her strength and overall health. Kelly's work went beyond the exercises: she connected with a shy teen who was in pain; she took each day as it came, pushing as necessary and resting as needed; she brought smiles, healthy recipes, and was a positive role model; she gave a glimpse of a healthier, stronger life and provided the tools and encouragement to attain it. Happy ending (happy beginning?), my daughter is now back at school, addicted to Pilates, yoga, and other healthy exercise, (and Kelly's green smoothies.)
How Kelly gives back
