Full Bio

Kelli’s path to becoming a professional coach began in her role as a researcher and engineer, where she experienced first hand how the competing pressures and priorities can lead high-performing women to end up feeling burned out, stuck, and unfulfilled in careers they have worked extremely hard to achieve. She understands the unique challenges of typically being “the only woman in the room” at technical conferences and the continual pressure to balance professional and personal priorities.

Kelli’s coaching clients describe working with her as grounding, insightful, and empowering. She has a reflective and exploratory approach with her clients that leads to a deeper awareness of the obstacles standing in their way. That awareness allows clients to design and act on intentional plans centering around challenges with career satisfaction and transitions as well as developing confidence and presence to circumvent the dreaded imposter syndrome.
