“One day I will find the words to properly thank you for the impact you have had on my life in the short time I have known you.
Kelly, you are simply an incredible human with a remarkable gift of strength, leadership, and love. The way you choose to teach and encourage growth, whether big or smaller, truly makes me want to look in the mirror to acknowledge where I may be lacking and makes me want to grow from that. Like many people, this has been a huge obstacle for me. However, somehow you make this sound easier than it actually is and hey, why not give it a try. A compliment from you feels like the best gift and has made me want to understand leadership in a way that encourages those around me. If I can ever make someone feel as strong and successful and determined as you have helped me feel, I will have certainly reached a new leadership level. The amount that I have learned from you in the short time I have known you is priceless. I can’t say that I viewed leadership in this way before I met you. Thank you!”
