“Kelly’s story was one of the most accurate articles I’ve read on this subject, detailed and properly illustrated.” 

-- Samuel Goldhaber, MD, section head for Vascular Medicine and director of the Thrombosis Research Group within the Cardiovascular Medicine Division of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School 


“What a GIFTED writer. Wow. Kelly’s story has to be one of my absolute favorite pieces anyone has written about me. Blown. Away. It is such a thoughtful piece. This means so much to me and again, this story is so beautiful.”

-- Tommy DiDario, “The Rachel Ray Show” and “Extra” correspondent 


“I want to take this opportunity to share with you my very positive experiences dealing with Kelly and her ability to capture thoughts and ideas and commit them to paper. In every step of the way, she offered great insight and assistance and industry knowledge. I highly recommend Kelly. She listens and takes great pride in the end product but is quick to adjust and modify as needed. Much success to you and your endeavor; it can only be enhanced by Kelly’s involvement.” 

-- Author W. Theodore Etzel, III 


“I remember when nobody knew who I was. Kelly was the first to write about me. It has been an absolute pleasure and honor to be the subject of her talent. Aside from being an amazing writer and a professional person, she changes lives. I know because she changed mine and with her assistance, I have been featured in numerous publications beyond my region which has helped grow my business exponentially.” 

-- Designer Wilfredo Emanuel, “Tables Wars” on HGTV / Discovery+ 


“I had the pleasure to work with Kelly for more than seven years in my capacity as her editor. Kelly never disappointed. She welcomed my ideas, and also proposed her own story ideas, always following through to produce thoroughly reported articles. She was a great communicator from start to finish on every assignment.”

-- Cindy Pierce, Florida Weekly 


“Kelly was our thoroughbred, one of the rare people who reads the edited version and grasps what her editors want -- and then puts it into her next piece.”
-- Harriet Heithaus, Gannett Media 


“Few people ever say ‘thank you’ to an editor. Mostly they say, ‘Where's my check?’ or ‘Why did you change my lede?’ But, once again, Kelly, you have proved yourself exceptional and that's why we love you.”
-- Catharine Hamm, former travel editor of The Los Angeles Times 


“It is my pleasure to support and endorse Kelly. During my career I had the privilege of working with Kelly. Kelly is very thorough, yet very easy to work with. Many of us always considered ourselves lucky to be included in her writing, knowing it would be professional and written with style.”
-- Author Kathy Guyitt 


“I have given over 15 seminars and am always glad when a writer attends. To have them write about my topic of presentation and quote me is very flattering and the public exposure is valuable in this world of competition. That being said, I am often surprised at how my words are misinterpreted and misconstrued. This never happened when Kelly wrote about me. I was always excited to read her work because she always accurately portrayed her subjects.” 

-- Diane Toresi


“Miss Kelly was our favorite instructor at the summer writing camp. She got us out of our seats to do fun things. We got to write about our fictional characters and draw them out so we could relate to our stories.” 

-- Middle Grade Students, Great Smokies Summer Writing Program, UNC-Asheville
