And Coffee


We all have dreams, passions, gifts.

The thing is... they’re not a luxury, but a responsibility.

You know that space where time races and basic needs like going to the bathroom, sleeping and eating feel like a burden because you just want to be in the zone. We all need to be there more.

My goal is to help clarify what that zone is, translate it into a clear message that embodies your soul while speaking to your ideal client’s heart through the words and design behind your business.  In short, I’m here to offer you permission to be uniquely you.  Build it into a business.  Then show you off.  TA-DA.


Oh, hey!

Allow myself to introduce myself...

1.  One of my worst fears is appearing narcissistic.  To be noted: I'm devoting an entire website that is named after me. 

2. I've birthed two humans.  One boy.  One girl. This week, I like the girl better.  #noyoudidnt

3. I love interior decorating, organization, and ruthlessly cleaning out. I’m just now seeing how these traits show up in the work I do on websites. Because how we do one thing, is how we do errrrything.

4. My undergraduate degree is in Communications and Creative Writing.  It took me 4 colleges and 10 years to get this.

5. I was once an Aesthetician (certified through the Aveda Institute of IL). I was once a Health Coach (certified through IIN).  I am currently a Life Coach (certified through IGC).  I love aspects of all of them, it is part of the reason I switched my business brand from Gingermint Creative to hey, I'm Kelli.  Basically... I do more than websites.  

6. I think I like to move more than I like to stay.  I grew up in Michigan. Lived in Phoenix, Chicago, Portland, Seattle and, most recently, Santa Cruz. 

7. My perfect birthday present = this cake with homemade, butter cream frosting and a tarot card reading.

This photo was taken over 4 years ago, before I had kids. I do not look this young in real life and I don't think those pants still fit. I can't say for certain 'cause Goodwill.
