A dedicated educator & student of physical and mental health, Kelly has been a yoga and mindfulness teacher for over 14 years. Her studies have taken her around the globe to include Rishikesh, India where she studied Kundalini with Gurmukh. Healing her physical ailments from a young age, when modern medicine and countless operations could not, has fuelled her passion for nurturing others in the same way.

Psychologically, Kelly suffered again in adult life experiencing the loss of her uncle and a dear friend, to suicide. This continues to drive her work for social change today, breaking the stigma around mental health disorders and believing no one need ever suffer in silence.

Kelly is an advocate for mental health and passionate about delivering services in hard to reach areas of low economic output, populations who are underserved and/or traumatised to include the incarcerated, young people’s homes and pupil referral units.

She continues to work in high secure institutions and low socio-economic groups bringing adequate support and profound peace to those in need irrespective of their background, privileges or financial situation and thus set up the social enterprise, Panacea Project® to provide those necessary resources.
