Kelly is a warm, empathetic QNR™ facilitator, incredibly passionate about creating genuine, trusting relationships with her clients and colleagues. From a young age, she witnessed the effects of constraints on mental health struggles.

Supporting a family member suffering with severe anxiety and depression was Kelly’s first experience with the Bain Wellness Spa. She was in awe of how quickly they experienced a noticeable difference during their visits. By the time she completed the program, her family member felt in control of her life and mental health again. It was then Kelly knew, she wanted to become a QNR™ facilitator with the Brain Wellness Team to help people create the positive change they long for.
