Get to Know Kelly

Hey, I’m Kelly MacLellan!

M.Sc., Rehabilitation Counsellor, Author, Certified Life & Career Specialist with a spiritual twist.

Embrace Your Life was founded in 2008 and has helped hundreds of people rebuild their lives after life-changing events by breaking through personal and professional limits to find hope. Embrace Your Life is for the professional who is struggling to find purpose in the face of change, transition, and loss. Coaching will help you close the gap between reality and your vision of your future – for yourself and your family. You will ease into change, embracing it rather than resisting it.

My career is built on serving public and private clients looking to rebuild their careers – and lives, after loss. They struggle to find fulfillment. I am a member of The Institute of Coaching at McLean, Harvard Medical School Affiliate, and my training is recognized by ICF – International Coach Federation.

I deeply love learning and am continually studying the material in labor economics, psychology, human resources, and grief and bereavement.

My personal story of healing and transformation inspires the core message of my business Embrace Your Life Coaching which I started in 2008 after I reimagined my life after loss…which lead me to the Caribbean! Read more here.

A Passionate Coach with a unique experience.

As a Career Change Specialist, Author, Certified Life and Career Coach with a Masters Degree in Rehabilitation Counselling, a Bachelors Degree in Sociology, Diploma in Social Services and Certificates in Human Resources, Counselling, Creative Writing and a current student of Thanatology and Mindfulness Teacher Training,

I will draw on accumulated knowledge and wisdom to customize a strategy with you to help with whatever you are facing in your life.

Driven to Uncover your Potential

I believe that fulfillment is experienced by living a purpose-driven life, and meaningful work provides an opportunity to share your gifts with the world.

I have always approached work as an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to society.

Even in my first job of scooping ice cream and my second when I would feed the residents in a nursing home, to more recently speaking to large groups or doing business consulting, negotiating, or coaching professionals to find more fulfillment and success –

My work has always been about seeing the person in front of me and all their potential and reflecting on their brilliance to find solutions together. It’s powerful and transformational.
