About Kelly


"Coined as the girl with the greatest laughter in the whole world," Kelly engages audiences by inviting creative play and humor into an environment where we are scarcely aware we are learning. Highly interactive presentations help us to learn how to laugh at ourselves while taking our work seriously and ourselves lightly... creating a strong and positive company culture.  Choosing to be happy reduces stress and inspires participation, productivity and profits!
