Kelly Melear-Hough is a Certified Life, Spiritual, and Energy Coach, Shamanic Practitioner, and Reiki Master. She is trauma-informed, anti-racist, and actively working on decolonizing her mind and holding a safer space for all people regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, place of origin, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, socio-economic group, disability, neurodiversity, and any differentiators that have traditionally held stigma or been discriminated against.
Kelly recognizes that being a white woman has afforded her certain priveliges within society that have helped her achieve the successes she has experienced. She has a genuine desire to help others and to hold space for people who have not had the same privileges she has had.
In addition, she acknowledges that much of the wisdom she has gained comes from sources such as indigenous peoples of the world including North, Central, and South American indigenous people and people of Asia. This includes shamanic practices and meditative practices she has learned from various sources and concepts of energy/healing that she learned through the study of Reiki, a Japanese modality, and other Eastern traditions. She is currently endeavoring to reconnect with her own Northern European roots through the study of ancient Celtic spirituality and shamanism.
Kelly has a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Tennessee, with a concentration in Community Health Education. She also holds a B.A. from Lafayette College in Anthropology and Sociology with a minor in Spanish. Kelly worked in the Healthcare industry for 25 years, serving in various roles from medical Spanish interpreter, outreach worker, and Migrant Program Director to principal grant writer and Chief Operating Officer.

Both Diana and HeatherAsh apprenticed with Don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements and Toltec teacher. Through the Artist of the Spirit Coach Training program, Kelly learned life coaching methods, energy tools, and shamanic healing and is certified as a Life, Energetic and Spiritual Coach. Kelly is also certified as a Warrior Goddess Training Facilitator with HeatherAsh Amara and she has studied core shamanism with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies. In addition, Kelly completed a year-long course of study with the Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy which is approved by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and she is a Level III Reiki Master.

I just finished an incredible session with my new coach, Kelly Melear-Hough. “Wow” does not begin to describe the experience. If any of you are looking for someone to skillfully guide you through the exciting, wonderful, and yes, scary journey to the depths of your soul, Kelly is your person. She is honest, immaculately professional, kind, and insightful. I highly recommend her!!
Speaking with Kelly was more than a pleasure, it was a comfortable, easy journey into my own thoughts and emotions. Her voice is calming, her ability to help me to relax and open myself was so organic, I had no trouble allowing myself to be honest with myself about myself. I could tell after only a few minutes that her knowledge is extensive and of course her credentials speak for themselves, but more importantly, I sensed she was genuine in her desire to help me. I didn’t expect to come away from my session a completely changed individual, that’s not realistic. Nor did I envision some supernatural, out-of-body miracle experience, but I can honestly say that I feel better after talking with her than I did when we began. One step at a time, that’s my goal. I look forward to meeting with her again and I am excited about the potential progress I will make with Kelly as my coach.
I absolutely loved working with Kelly! I came into our session stressed and confused, and left with a sense of calmness and clarity. Kelly took the time to understand my current situation and then led me through an amazing Shamanic journey. It was exactly what I needed!
