"During her tenure at Jacksonville Beach Elementary, Mrs. Kelly was a phenomenal resource to students by supporting their social/emotional development and ensuring that they had the necessary skills to succeed in the classroom setting and beyond! Although she had many strengths in her position as a School Counselor, her passion for providing classroom guidance lessons and working in small groups with children who needed additional social/emotional intervention was unparalleled.


"Mrs. Kelly’s mission was to uncover the amazing potential in each student and used a variety of methods to achieve her goal, including focus on mindfulness and physical fitness activities. Our school community will dearly miss her, but we are so glad that she is continuing her work with our local youth."

Cameron Mattingly, Principal

Jacksonville Beach Elementary

“Kim was selected as the first FACE4Kids instructor in Northeast Florida.  Her enthusiasm for combining physical and mental health was quite evident from the beginning. The schools and participants in her sessions are excited and can see the passion that she shares with each group. I would recommend Kim to anyone who wants a professional, energetic, passionate and caring instructor for any youth based organization looking for the ideal person to help our youth.”

"This class has been amazing for my son. He has learned about rock climbing and gained confidence in a new physical activity. More importantly, he has learned valuable skills about teamwork, which I see at home when he is playing with his little sister and at play dates. Ms. Kim is wonderful. She manages to teach these skills with enthusiasm and corrects behavior without ever raising her voice. I would easily recommend her classes."
