“Kelsey has created an outstanding program with WLA. From the first call with Kelsey, I felt an instant connection. She quickly became a friend and is the ultimate cheerleader guiding you towards success and helping you achieve your goals. The course is broken out into 12 weeks and each week challenges you to break down barriers and works towards finding clarity on what you truly want and don’t want in life. You not only get to connect multiple times a week with Kelsey, but you have the opportunity to create relationships with the other women in the WLA program. Kelsey also keeps things fun by throwing in the occasional boot camp class and sets up fantastic group sessions with inspirational women who are crushing their own goals and living their dreams. The program sets you up to figure out what you want and then guides you on how to get there and step into your leadership. Kelsey keeps you accountable the whole time. I truly recommend this program to any woman looking to reach their fullest potential!”

“The Women’s Leadership Accelerator program has been such an incredibly rewarding experience for me. Starting this program, I loved my career and felt comfortable in my role – but I knew there was more for me to learn and achieve. I had been looking for a program like this for sometime and Kelsey and I clicked immediately. Through the WLA, Kelsey has taught me invaluable lessons and helped me grow into a next level leader. With the help of this program, I’ve been able to hone my managerial mindset and have become a better role model for my team. Kelsey has been my teacher, my collaborative strategist, and my steadfast cheerleader – she’s pushed me out of my comfort zone and helped me to gain clarity on my own purpose, both personally and professionally. With Kelsey’s help, I’ve set goals for myself that I’ve been trying to accomplish for years and her accountability and support helped me achieve them. This program has given me the direction I didn’t even realize I was looking for. It’s helped me become a better communicator and gain a whole new perspective on how to connect with my co-workers, clients, friends, and family. Even if you’re happy with where you’re at, with work or in life, this program will open your eyes to how you can level up and be an even better version of yourself through insight and action.”

“Enrolling in Women’s Leadership Accelerator was one of the best decisions I made in my life! I am so happy I invested in myself. Kelsey is an amazing coach! She is kind, respectful, honest, strong, and wise. She is very committed and connected to her clients, it feels like she is your best friend! When I started this program I was at my lowest. I had low self-confidence and I was stuck in a place where I was constantly doubting myself and afraid of moving forward. All my life I had confidence problems and my happiness basically relied on others’ approval. I did achieve my goals in the past but I constantly felt like I did not deserve them, or I just got lucky! Kelsey taught me to value myself, acknowledge and celebrate my wins no matter how small they are, believe in myself and find happiness from within regardless of what others think. My confidence was built during this program, and I learned how to have control over my emotions rather than letting them control me. Now I am excited to do things outside of my comfort zone, I am not afraid of making mistakes and failure. I know failure is the price of success! I can control my emotions and make decisions based on what aligns with my values and my vision. I get excited about things that used to give me anxiety! Anxiety is no longer limiting my goal setting and I can dream big and take messy action! Kelsey was always there for me when I had a down moment, she listened carefully and guided me through finding my way back. And that’s how I learned to bring myself back and be my higher self again when I feel my limiting beliefs and negative emotions are getting in my way! I can be honest with myself, hear myself out, identify the blocks, and reprogram my brain! I definitely recommend this course to everyone! No matter where you are in your life, this program can benefit you. Believe in the program and do the work, and you will be surprised how your life is going to be impacted by it!”

“This program, under Kelsey’s guidance, has been monumental for me and I recommend it to anyone who is asking themselves, ‘Can this program help me?’ Before I started working with Kelsey, I knew I wanted to become a leader, but I wasn’t sure how or when that would happen. It has been life-changing in unexpected ways and I strongly urge any woman, who has hesitation or is holding themselves back, to take this leap. Every week, I was discovering something new about myself that I had never thought of before. To know yourself and deeply understand who you are at your core is a powerful thing. WLA, from day 1, has been doing just that. I have learned to understand the root of my self-doubt and fears, and I have overcome them. Kelsey is an incredible coach and confidant. I cannot recommend this program more. This has been the best investment I have made in myself!”
Shirley Lin, Senior Financial Advisor
“Being coached by Kelsey was an absolutely eye-opening experience. Even though I already had been constantly asking myself what exactly I want for my life, I was still very concerned that no one in my circle can resonate. Kelsey’s sessions were very well structured with lots of evocative questions that truly touched my deepest doubts, soft spots, and memories. She was very encouraging and empathetic, which made me feel that my voice was heard without the fear of judgment. Also, the exercises gave me the opportunity to recognize all the things I have accomplished so far, which allowed me to have a more positive outlook for the challenges ahead. Thanks to her, I’m ready to embrace that future self with much more clarity, confidence, and courage.”

“Being part of the WLA program has changed my life! After my first conversation with her I knew it was something I had to do. She was so honest and real. She asked the hard questions that made me really understand how much I wanted change and helped me reconnect with my goals (I almost cried). This was all in the first discovery call. I am so happy I decided to take the leap to work with Kelsey. She has become my biggest cheerleader and honestly feels like my best friend! When I started the WLA program I was lost. I felt stuck in a life that didn’t serve me and wasn’t sure how to take steps to move towards my career and life goals. I had little confidence and didn’t have an understanding of my worth. I was questioning if I was ever going to see the success that I desired. Kelsey helped me understand AND accept the lessons that my situation was trying to teach me. We worked to reframe my thoughts and set boundaries, so I could start taking steps forward. She also taught me how to value myself and showed me I have so many talents and skills to bring to the table. Since starting the course my confidence has skyrocketed! I feel like I know myself better than I ever have before because of this program. I finally feel worthy of my career and life goals and have been given the tools to help me achieve them. I am no longer letting fear hold me back.I would highly recommend this program! I believe so strongly in Kelsey’s method and in her approach to one-on-one coaching. It has honestly changed my life. No matter where you are in life I truly think that everyone could benefit from this program.
