Kelsey is the co-owner of the Wells River Wellness Hall and Rising Spirit Yoga.  She is a yoga instructor and a certified health coach. Kelsey received her training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition.

Kelsey has a passion for health care. Her journey into health care began at 18 when she worked at an integrative pharmacy.  When she moved to Vermont from Colorado, she took a 200 hour Yoga teacher training that inspired her to do more. In 2014 she purchased Rising Spirit Yoga and has grown the business to serve a larger community.  

After completing her training from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition she began offering more health care to the yoga community.  She now specializes in women's health and hormone disorders, supporting women of all ages. Kelsey and her husband Jason opened the Wells River Wellness Hall in November of 2018.  The large building is now home to many wellness practitioners. She believes the wellness should be available to all regardless of where they live.

She serves on the Blue Mountain Union School board.  Her other passion is for education. Children are our future.  She serves on the community relations subcommittee of the school board, getting important board information to the community.  Originally from Boulder, CO, she now lives in Vermont with her husband and children.
