Hey I'm Kelsey...the Sacred Rebel, Conscious Creator, Connector and Magic Maker!
I help empower women embark on the journey their soul has been calling them to take, so they can step fully into an inspired life, become unstoppable, and create the clarity they need to live out their biggest, boldest dreams.
Do you realize you have your own unique roadmap?! The one you've been creating your entire life on your way to experiencing more JOY, FREEDOM, and AUTHENTICITY.
The way I share my Soul Work is through 1:1 Coaching, Group Guidance, Movement Classes, Workshops, Energy Healing, and Facilitating Women's Retreats around the world.
This is a highly condensed version of my actual story. A more detailed recount of my life will be told in the first book of the Adventures of Awakening book series coming out Fall 2019...Alchemizing Pain into Personal Empowerment.
My spiritual journey started when I was about 14, being introduced to psychic readings, crystals, incense, and all things new age at the time. I was obsessed from the start!
My childhood up until that point had been filled with abuse, alcoholism, divorce, trauma, and pain.
So when I was 15, and my great uncle invited my sister and I to go on an epic 2 month road trip with him, I jumped on the opportunity. This was my first transformational travel experience...driving from Denver, Colorado to Fairbanks, Alaska, and back to Indiana, during the summer before 12th grade. And it's also what sparked the never-ending sense of wanderlust, that I continue to carry with me today.
When I was 18, I combined my love of spirituality and travel, and moved from Indiana to North Carolina, to join a meditation community. I would then spend the next 8 years of my life, fully immersed in a container that was purely focused on consciousness. I learned how to meditate, spending 12-18 hours a day, in meditation, with nightly meetings and rituals, combined with yoga, and connection.
The community moved to British Columbia a year later, and I followed, spending 4 years traveling all over Canada, staying at various retreat centers. It wasn't until recently that I opened up and owned up to the fact that I was actually in a cult for 8 years.
Where the teachings began in purity, the egos of the teachers/gurus, took over and it become an experience of losing myself to deep mind-control and manipulation. I had no contact with the "outside" world for most of those 8 years.
Upon leaving that community, I went through a "dark night of the soul," for about 10 years. I immediately got pregnant with my beautiful daughter, and married to her father. This relationship was a continuation of abuse, control, and manipulation, for nearly 7 years.
I gained the strength to leave that marriage by starting a fitness journey, where I lost 60 pounds, and found a sense of community, that I'd been missing. That inner and outer strength is what helped me get through the most painful years of my life, following my divorce.
About 2 years post-divorce, I hit rock bottom. I was living with constant PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic attacks so bad, I wasn't eating and could hardly go to work. That's when an angel/mentor came into my life, and changed everything.
With help and guidance, I found my way back to the light. I became hopeful for the first time ever. I did the deep soul work it required to dig myself out of the hole I'd sunken into. This work wasn't easy, but it was absolutely worth it.
In the following years after that, I started traveling again, acquired various holistic certifications, and found myself inspired by life! And even better, I actually found myself. I learned self-compassion, love, and forgiveness. I felt ALIVE, and started dreaming about how I could help others.
And that's how the Spiritual Travel Agent was born! It started as a travel blog, where I'd share my travel adventures, and spirituality, and then my vision grew MASSIVELY. Not long after, my coaching business naturally evolved. I started running retreats, and found it to be the most natural thing in the world, after my years of facilitating weekend workshops, within my meditation community.
After my first retreat, I felt like I'd come home. I stepped into my gifts and fully into my power, and knew without a doubt, my purpose in life is to inspire other women to do the things they don't believe are possible. I'm here to show you that no matter what you've done, where you've been, or who you were in your past...you can become the woman your soul is crying for you to be!
If you feel something stirring inside of you, but aren’t quite sure what it is, you're in the right place. If you're ready to take your life, business, and spiritual practice to the next level, this is the place for you!
