Kelley K. Robinson, MSN, FNP-C
Life & Wellness Coach | Nurse Practitioner
I am a dreamer, an agent of change, and an adventure seeker. I strive to contribute to a larger purpose in this life. I am passionate about connection and people. I am obsessed with discovering why there is a collective conscious movement right now to create change, not settle, to seek your passion, pave your own trajectory, and strike a better life/work balance. We are hungry for it.
I created IGNITE to motivate and support people to dream big and create change in their lives. To have the courage not to settle for the regular ole' trajectory life hands us. To create our own story.
Developing human potential creates a deep rooted happiness. If we are fulfilled in our own life we have energy left over to unite with others to contribute to greater purpose.
I am dedicated to join you in your journey to live a life full of fulfillment and to ignite your fierce potential!
How did I get here? I am not big on settling for the status quo. I always want to squeeze more from life. I climb the mountain only to see whats on the other side. This has played out in the choices I've made. I was a behavioral therapist with children who had autism for four years. Then went on to become a nurse practitioner because I felt there was a huge gap in my knowledge about the human body, disease, and how it contributed to health. But, I became frustrated because healthcare is often focused more on treating those who are already sick. Logically this drove me crazy. Why not shift our focus to prevention and wellness? Keep people from getting sick in the first place?
Numerous times I would go to my mentor asking for advice because healthcare just didn't feel like a good fit. I wanted to do more, create change. Figure out how to focus on prevention and wellness. I just couldn't see where I fit within the current model.
I kept seeking other opportunities. I'd teach, write, and do public speaking about the things I felt passionate about. In those moments, I felt I had purpose. I felt alive.
A little over a year ago my best friend, my idol, my coach in life - the ultimate adventurer and freedom seeker, my father, discovered he had pre-cancerous lesions on his pancreas. He ended up in and out of the hospital 5 times. Seeing this strong, beautiful man who has always taught me to seek adventure, freedom, and a live a life for moments that take your breath away - get close to the brink of cashing in his chips, rocked me to my core.
It made me ask myself. Am I living my life to it's fullest?
Sometimes in life we need to break our patterns. Have our core rocked. Experience a moment where we have a shift of consciousness. It's in these moments the impetus for change is found.
