With a Master of Science in Nursing specializing in holistic nurse coaching and a commitment to evidence-based holistic healing, I blend the art and science of wellness to help my clients flourish from within. In addition to my 1:1 nurse coaching work, I offer group coaching and community self-care sessions. I also collaborate with hospitals and organizations on employee wellness initiatives, holistic support for mental health + substance use disorder treatment, oncology, and end-of-life care.


battling burnout AS A NURSE 

As I walked my own path through burnout and healing, I couldn't shake the feeling that something vital was missing in the conventional healthcare system. It seemed like there was a gap in the support needed for genuine transformation—a kind of care that didn't just help you get by but helped you truly thrive.

In both my personal journey and my professional role as a nurse, I faced firsthand the challenges of delivering holistic care in a healthcare system that often leaves little room for the depth of support patients truly need.

While I've always believed in the value of conventional treatments, I couldn't ignore the glaring need for more holistic nursing support based on solid evidence. Our healthcare systems don't always prioritize this kind of care & it can be challenging to truly connect with patients on a holistic level.

However, it was during this time that I experienced the transformative power of holistic nurse coaching firsthand. Through the compassionate guidance and holistic approach of a nurse coach, I discovered a path to healing that was not just putting band-aids on deep-rooted issues. It was a journey that delved deep into the core of my being, addressing all aspects of my well-being. 

It was through this experience that I realized the profound impact holistic nurse coaching could have on individuals seeking true transformation. It's more than just a profession—it's a calling to guide others on their own path to healing and wellness. And it's a calling that I've wholeheartedly embraced, dedicated to helping others unlock the same potential for growth and healing that I've experienced firsthand.



When I made the choice to pursue my Master of Science in Holistic Nurse Coaching, it wasn't just about advancing my education. It was a deeply personal journey of self-discovery and healing. Along the way, I confronted my own struggles with PTSD, inflammation, and burnout. It was a turbulent time, filled with uncertainty and pain. Despite the challenges, I couldn't ignore the whispers of my heart urging me forward.

As I embraced this journey, I discovered an inner strength and resilience I never knew I had. I learned to trust my instincts, listen to my body, and prioritize my own well-being. Through it all, I realized that true healing begins from within.

Now, as a holistic nurse at Hope With Kelly, I have the honor of sharing my journey with others. I walk alongside them as they embark on their own path towards healing. It's a journey of vulnerability, courage, and genuine connection—one that reminds us of the incredible resilience of the human spirit. Together, we explore the transformative power of holistic healing, nurturing hope and wholeness every step of the way.

I've learned that transformation is possible, even in the face of challenges. And I'm committed to sharing my journey and spreading hope to others, one step at a time.

Integrating evidence-based holistic practices with conventional methods felt like coming home. These tools weren't just techniques; they served as guides, directing me inward and amplifying the voice of my heart.


As a New England native, I've always been drawn to the beauty of coastal landscapes, the changing seasons, and venturing to warmer weather in the winter. After earning my Bachelor of Science in Nursing from Simmons College in 2018, I decided to shake things up and traded the bustling streets of Boston for the sunny shores of San Diego.

It was during this transition that fate intervened in the most unexpected way. Another traveler on a cross-country flight led to my first nursing job at a holistic addiction center in San Diego. It was a serendipitous moment that set the course for my professional journey.

Outside the world of nurse coaching, you'll frequently find me unwinding with my two kitties, exploring San Diego with my boyfriend, and strolling along the beach. Alongside my nursing pursuits, I also take on the role of a digital marketing agency owner. This has incredibly fulfilling, providing me with the opportunity to express my creativity and entrepreneurial drive in more ways. 

clinical background & education

My journey through clinical practice and education has been both enriching and transformative.


My nursing career took root at a holistic addiction treatment center, where I discovered the essence of holistic clinical practice. Over the span of five enriching years, I delved deep into substance use disorder treatment and behavioral health nursing, realizing the profound impact of healing on mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical levels.

clinical roles:
-rtc detox & addiction treatment nurse
-women's trauma center nursing manager
-sud/mh iop nurse
-ip mh float pool nurse
-crisis triage clinician & utilization management care manager

Completing my Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Simmons University in Boston, MA was truly the beginning of my journey into nursing. During those transformative years, I spent three impactful years at Mass General on a Thoracic Surgery unit, learning firsthand the intricacies of patient care and the importance of compassion.


Through these experiences, my passion for supporting clients with preventative and holistic care grew exponentially. This drove me to pursue further education, leading me to earn my Master of Science in Nursing in Holistic Nurse Coaching from Pacific College of Health and Science from 2021 to 2023, deepening my expertise in holistic approaches to healing.
