She also spent time in L.A. acting in movies & T.V. shows including but not limited to, “Rumor Has It” with Jennifer Aniston & Mark Rufflo, “Gilmore Girl’s” & “Desperate House Wife’s. Later on at age 15, the brain tumor returned and changed her life forever when she suffered from a complete right sided stroke. At 15 Kelsey would have to relearn how to do everything from tying her shoes to brushing her teeth. As she relearned to do even the most basic tasks she found innovative solutions that allowed her to relearn how to do things that she was told she would never be able to do including; running, swimming and even putting her hair into a pony tail.

Despite the many challenges she faced, Kelsey graduated from high school on time with honors, graduated from college with high honors, went to work for a Fortune 100 Company and now travels the country as a Professional Speaker. Having succeeded in spite of life changing, medical obstacles, she brings a unique perspective on life and the ability to succeed.
