Personal trainer, financial coach, group instructor, influencer, and wellness advocate. She grew up in the Bronx, NY, and went on to play basketball for Christ the King Regional High School in Queens, NY. She then attended New York University, and graduated with a degree in communication sciences, with the goal and passion of connecting with and helping others. Kelly realized this wasn’t her calling, and amidst plenty of disappointment and uncertainty with her future, she landed into fitness after working in an administrative aide role for a gym.

Through her own experiences of being down and out, Kelly has the single goal of helping others seek deeply within themselves to live a life of purpose, and realize their power in their ability to choose the life they envision. She believes success – a never ending journey – is subjective, but the underlying theme is adversity and understanding success comes with not only positive, but negative emotions. But she believes the biggest opportunity for growth and happiness comes from what you choose to do with those negative emotions; we all are valid for feeling the emotions we do, always. But will you choose the comfort of staying the same? Or the challenge, which is worth it big picture, of digging within to heal what triggers you, in order to move forward in a mindset which helps you get back up whenever you fall?

Kelly believes fitness allows you to truly be present, and when you’re present, you’re taking charge of yourself, your life, and your choices, which will help lead to anything you strive for.
