She has lived with chronic migraines for the last 30 years. And symptoms of this chronic life including high and low blood pressure, anxiety, vertigo and fainting, brain fog, muscle stiffness, and more recently, osteoarthritis. Living with chronic illness is challenging, but a vibrant life is still an everyday choice.
Kelley has lived in Taos for 20 years, and still finds the sky, daily rainbows in July and each and every sunset a piece of beauty to stop and soak into her bones and heart. She is married to a beautiful and driven man, raised a son who skipped high school and adventured off to college at age 16, and she worked in development and marketing for 25 years, much of that in health care. Kelley is a woman who writes, photographs, cooks, and loves. A woman who believes in the beauty of the yogic path.
