"Kelly helped me to open my eyes and realize what my personal impact can be. Regardless of what you do as a vocation and in your free time, small changes can make a big difference. If we take ownership and set attainable goals, we can act as agents of change."
Audra Zipple, CCC-Speech Language Pathologist and NBA dancer

"You (Kelly) lead by example. You've always kept sustainable living in mind and show the rest of us that sustainable living is not restrictive or less abundant than other lifestyles. We see in you that living in harmony with the earth is the happiest way to live. It's the way that frees us of the unsatisfying desire for more stuff, and helps us live mindfully." Carol Rathe, BA in Speech and Drama, Retired Business Owner of GoVoices
"In my work as teacher, minister and counselor, I strive to restore people’s connection of mutual love and respect with Mother Earth. Kelly has inspired me to find simple ways to expand my own relationship with the natural world in terms of conservation, care and collaboration. She has the deep passion needed to be a powerful guide who reminds us of our inextricable connection to the Earth and all of Her wonders." Right Reverend Mary Francis Drake, MA, MSW, University Faculty, Poet, and Author of This Much I Know is True: Gleanings from the Path of Love and beauty, grit and grace
"Kelly is a shining star to the planet. I have known Kelly for over 20 years and one thing for sure is her exuberance for living a conscious and productive life. She has a unique ability to excite and motivate people with her passion of cleaning up and nurturing the earth when others sit back and watch, Kelly is upfront and center making a difference. Her life is an example of living the talk." Susan Bliffert, Occupational Therapist, Eden Energy Medicine Certified Practitioner, Reiki Master Teacher, and Owner and Director of Blue Lotus Farms
"I met Kelly at a small Fridays for Future climate rally in a city park, in our very conservative county. It was during Greta Thunberg’s time in the US which focused the world’s attention on the lack of action to our climate crisis. Kelly and I later met to problem-solve with others locally around this issue. Kelly is her company’s green team leader as well as a health professional. I felt Kelly’s urgency and her passion to change the climate trajectory. It was then that I joined a global organization called the Climate Reality Project. I became a trained Climate Reality Leadership Corps member along with 10,000 other virtual trainees in 2020. I am grateful that our paths crossed in 2019. Kelly is inspiring, ready to lead, creative and thoughtful. Kelly was one of my catalysts to get involved. She has natural skills with youth as well as adults. I am confident Kelly will make a difference in strategizing and calling to action those ready to move toward solutions to this great global threat."
