I partner with leaders in thought-provoking and challenging conversations to help them grow and develop in all aspects of their professional and personal lives. My diverse background, from working at a pre-revenue startup to a multi-billion-dollar financial institution, informs my unique approach to workplace innovation and efficacy.

I'll help you re-envision your current constraints, empower you to elevate what’s possible, and hold you accountable to your new best self. Together, we'll develop an increased capacity for deeper and broader thought that catalyzes self-actualization.

I’m a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) through the International Coach Federation, I hold a Master’s in Global Business Leadership (MS), and as a lifelong learner I have a variety of professional certifications. I’m natively fluent in Spanish and have worked and studied in Latin America and traveled to 20 countries across 5 continents.

Director @ Microsoft

"I had the awesome opportunity to work with Kelby as he coached me in relation to work related issues. Kelby brought great perspective and allowed me to focus on the things I needed to in moving forward in a positive way. His coaching was a key element in some important decisions I had on my agenda. I highly recommend Kelby for anyone seeking a thoughtful and guiding coach."
— Joe Wallis

Development Director @ BuildOn

"I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work with Kelby as my coach. He’s a compassionate listener and his questions have always ignited new insights. My work with him has reminded me of my own road blocks and has empowered me to change my relationship from “obstacles” to “opportunities”."
— Jonathan Vallejo, M.P.A

Senior Consultant @ Metrolink

"Over about a 6 month period, Kelby challenged me to examine key relationships - including my relationship with myself and with concepts, such as restoration - not critically, but with curiosity. Through his thoughtful, powerful questions, he's supported my continuing development and (dare I say) transformation in both my personal and career spheres. If you are ready to work with someone who will help you see through real or percieved walls to new possibilties, in an environment where you feel both supported and challenged, I highly recommend Kelby as a coach."
— Jen Akuna, M.A.
