"We were fortunate enough to work with Kelsa around the time we were considering becoming a B-Corp. At the time, we were daunted by the sheer amount of time involved to become certified but Kelsa jumped right in and got to work.
Working with Kelsa was a joy. She's driven, autonomous and deeply committed to doing great work. Her values-based approach shines through in every interaction as she's incredibly passionate about, and capable of, empowering businesses to have a big impact on the world.
Simply put, we wouldn't be a B-Corp nor would we have the clarity around our company's mission and values without Kelsa's help. Thank you, Kelsa!"

"So much of the information in our culture about building businesses focuses on hustle and just doing as much as possible as fast as you can, and it's tempting to believe that's how you build a business in our society. But working with Kelsa has been a wonderful opportunity to take a step back, reflect, and settle into the process of building a business that is sustainable and has a far-reaching positive impact. She has helped me see where my business is doing the most good, and how to build on those areas incrementally. And she's helped me let go of some things I thought I "should" be doing to be a successful and socially responsible business. I tend to try and tackle everything at once, so her emphasis on small meaningful steps has totally changed my perspective about how I can work most effectively. Having worked with several coaches, Kelsa has a unique style that I haven't come across before. She listens extremely well, allows for space in the conversation for new ideas to percolate, and takes large, seemingly complex topics and strips them down to easy-to-implement steps. I would highly recommend her to any person looking to find more balance in their business, and who wants their business to do more good in the world in a way that feels authentic and sustainable to them. She's a one-of-a-kind, sincere, caring, insightful person, and anyone would be lucky to work with her!"

"Kelsa is a rockstar, plain and simple. You know it the minute you meet her. She has that rare balance of a high intellect and a big heart, which makes her an absolute pleasure to work with. I’ve watched as Kelsa brought her MBA creative genius to helping multiple companies through the B Corps certification process, facilitating workshops and strategic planning sessions, and providing executive coaching to her clients. I’ve also had the pleasure of seeing her work as a project manager for our college as we pursue Ashoka Changemaker Campus status. It’s been an honor to work with Kelsa and if I were you I’d jump at the chance to work with her."
