Kelly needed an escape from the chaos of her environment and planned her life at 13 years old. She signed herself out of high school and moved away to a Job Corps Center in Callicoon, NY. After reflecting back, Kelly recognized that this is where she first demonstrated her motivational and coaching gift.
