“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” ~ Anaïs Nin

KELLY MACLELLAN MSc,

Founder, Author, Life & Career Coach 

I am grateful and honoured to be a part of a family of courageous leaders, public servants, world travelers and knowledge seekers. So, because of this upbringing, 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 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 success – my work has always been about seeing the person in front of me, and all their potential and reflecting their brilliance back to them to find solutions together. It’s powerful and transformational.

My six figure career is built on serving public and private clients looking to rebuild their life after some kind of loss and struggling to find fulfillment. I am a member of the 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 material in human services and human resources. Currently, I am a student in Loss, Grief and Bereavement program at Western University. Ironically, this training has inspired a deeper commitment to my belief in my message to “Embrace Your Life”.

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 uprooted myself and moved to the Caribbean! Read more here:

When you experience a moment of insight – PAY ATTENTION & LISTEN!

In quiet times you may feel a nagging pull to say something, or do something or let all your emotions out!

Are you being called to take action or alternatively, simply feeling the urge you to surrender and rest? 

Are you being asked to forgive someone or yourself? 

Do you want to have a deeper connection with your loved ones? Yourself?

Do you want to show up in your life in a greater, more meaningful way?

Do you want to use your position at work as a leader, manager, decision maker and make a greater positive impact?

Are you feeling called to make changes in your life and career?

Several years have passed since I began my own transformational journey. Today, I am honoured to partner with other professionals who are courageously ready to take the next steps in finding fulfillment in their lives and careers.

Whether you want to be a role model in promoting workplace wellness, or be an enlightened leader, or personally have better career alignment, or experience more profound connections with the people you care about, I can help you. 

Because of my intention and commitment to provide the very best for my clients, professionally, I have invested in advanced education in leadership, business, career and personal development programs. As your coach, I will cheer you, challenge you, teach you and share my resources, all customized to your situation. Read Specific Qualifications in the Work With Me section.

My work is designed to inspire hope and guide you to live and work with purpose and fulfillment.

You are here in this moment, the future is ahead, the past is behind ~ What do you really want to create? How do you want to be in your life?

I would love to partner with you as you heal, plan and transform your life!

Choose which option of partnership is best for you!

With love, Enjoy!
Kelly
