About Deborah

My name is Deborah Kelly and I am a Positive Living Life Coach. I specialize in personal growth coaching, health and wellness coaching as well coach walking. I offer one on one coaching, group coaching and workshops.

I returned to school to become a life coach following a life altering medical diagnosis of Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia, a rare form of blood cancer. Upon diagnosis I was overwhelmed, terrified and uncertain about my future. I turned to a life coach in desperate need of support, understanding, and most significantly a new perspective on life. Almost immediately following my first session, I was able to start changing my thought processes and taking steps toward creating a new direction for my life. Over the following months, I began to see myself coaching others building off of what I learned. This positive experience with life coaching led me to the realization that I was meant to do this same work. Read more.

Prior to my work as a life coach, I was a personal fitness trainer, teacher and instructional coach. I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Physiology and a Master’s of Educational Administration from Lamar University. I am a proud wife and mom and love my family above all else. I have 2 children and 2 step-children and love being their mom! I am a native Texan currently living in the DC suburbs in support of my husband’s career. As a family, we love to exercise, travel, cook and spend time outdoors with family and friends.
