A little bit about Kelley...
the shortened version
Thank you so much for taking time to stop by my site.
I hope I can help you along your journey and we have the chance to get to know each other better.
A little bit about me - I have always had a passion for fitness and wellness. I decided to go to school and earned my bachelor's in Exercise Science & Health and coupled that with two master's: Exercise Science and Public Health. My ultimate goal is to bridge the gap between science and application providing realistic tools for real people to live a healthy life.
After spending my teens and twenties in the classroom, my dream is to pay it forward and educate and empower as many people as I can to practice a healthy lifestyle.
Thank you again for being here! I would love to hear from you, let me know how I can help.
A little bit more about Kelley...
the long version
From the classroom into the real world, revolutionizing the journey of healthy living!
A little bit more about me - I grew up in Westerville, a suburb outside of Columbus, Ohio. That’s right… O-H! (I secretly hope you said I-O!) The oldest of three I was a nerd and a tomboy whose knick name was stress ball! I played just about every sport growing up until I entered high school. In 8th grade I completed my science fair project on fuel for exercise, little did I know that would be the start of my lifelong education in health, fitness, and nutrition.
In college, I found my true passion in the weight room. It was a place where there was always a game, and I was always a starter and before I knew it, I was teaching group fitness classes, training clients, and preparing for my first figure competition. It was there, at Wake Forest University, my passion became clear. I looked forward to going to my exercise science classes and ended up majoring in Health and Exercise Science and minoring in chemistry. I knew I needed to find a way to make this field my lifelong career.
After a few years of waiting tables and studying for the MCAT, I decided to take a leap of faith and follow my heart. I applied to The George Washington University’s Exercise Science Strength & Conditioning Program and was offered a graduate assistantship. I packed my bags in 2010 and moved to Washington DC to earn my MS and followed that with Master of Public Health in Public Health Communication & Marketing. My passion was becoming more defined: I wanted to be the bridge between the science and the application of all things health, fitness, and wellness.
Along the way, in conjunction with falling in love with the science and theory of health, fitness, and wellness, I have fallen in love with the process of applying these concepts to my life and helping others do the same. My lifelong charge is to help men and women optimize their health, fitness, and wellness through behavior change, mindset, and lifestyle.
When I am not working, or working out, I love spending time with my family, friends, hanging out at the beach or exploring the DMV. I look forward to sharing my passion with you!
