  • Passions
    • Cleantech… since Kelly was a kid she was both into “saving the planet” (ask her parents about making them pay for recycling back when garbage pickup was free!) and a science & tech nerd, which makes cleantech a natural fit. She particularly enjoys monetizing energy efficiency gains, solar energy, geo-thermal energy, population planning and all things water.
    • Travel… whether it's coast to coast in Canada or extensive international travel, Kelly is always up for an adventure to meet new people and explore new cultures. She particularly enjoys long distance train travel.
    • Learning, play and creativity... it's one of the reasons that Kelly began consulting. To learn directly about new people and their businesses; having fun while finding creative solutions to their needs. She particularly enjoys running experiments and observational research.
    • Infectious enthusiasm... Kelly has been called “buckets of sunshine” and “like a dog with a bone”; she drives forward and brings others with her focused optimism.
