I’m Kelly.

I’m a walking confetti cannon, loaded and ready to celebrate every big decision, milestone, paid mortgage, and penny found in a parking lot.

For the past 11 years, I’ve been teaching writing and literature in high schools, colleges, and universities. Teaching and learning are both vulnerable and brave acts of curiosity and self-love, but they’re rarely framed that way. We are all asking to be taught, to be heard, to be understood, to be trusted, and to be allowed and encouraged to grow.

I write about my life as a mental health advocate, writer, and teacher. I’m here to help you expand in your creativity as you explore pieces of yourself and stories you’ve never told, but always believed.

I CAME HERE TO WRITE ON IT

I became a writing teacher because I believe in the courage necessary to ask words to do the work of your mind and heart. I believe in the power of putting thoughts into words and setting them down on paper, playing with them, moving them around the page, deleting and rewriting them, and seeing what happens.

I know that you have stories, too.
I’m here to check on you and your stories.
