our story

Kelly.jpg

There is a big difference between achievement and fulfillment. As a once self-proclaimed hyper-achiever, I can tell you that this self-sabotaging belief no longer serves me. Now I chase what brings me energy and creates fulfillment in my life, offering a deeper perspective and sense of purpose. The rewards are substantial and of no comparison. 

With over fifteen years of recognized strategy & transformation management consulting and executive coaching experience, I serve individuals and organizations through my passion and focus in human & business transformation, leadership development, and delivery excellence. Motivated by autonomy, and energized by meaningful work & human potential, Wander was born.
