This week Ivy Slater, host of Her Success Story, chats with her guest, Keli Kane. The two talk about rising within resilience, choosing to overcome, and embrace new talents that come with hardship and trauma. Keli tells us that she knew immediately, “I’ve got to be able to help save other people.”
In this episode, we discuss:
What brought her into the career of teaching, and how she found her expertise as a reading specialist
What beauty she finds in the caretaking aspect of her work, and also in being part counselor, part speech therapist, part parent, part healer
What life event helped her to find the trajectory where she’s going now, and the hidden gifts that came out in the redesigning of herself
How returning to work just before the pandemic affected her, and taught her many things that she’d need later
How she has “baby-stepped” the building blocks of her business
Her inspiring perspective on healing through a traumatic brain injury, day to day survival, and what else you’ll find in her book
Keli's loving and compassionate demeanor has destined her to teach young children as a Kindergarten Reading Specialist. She has a Bachelor of Science Degree, and a Master of Science in Education Degree. She is permanently certified by New York State as a Public-School Teacher Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, and Grades 1-6. She is also permanently certified as a Reading Teacher grades K-12. She has been and is currently still employed in the same school district as a Reading Specialist teaching grades K-12 since 2003. Through her life journey Keli has suffered and overcome many unforeseen changes, traumas, and upheavals. Keli has used her God given gifts to not only change her own life but others’ as well through energy healing. She has also studied Shamanism and became an Usui Reiki Master and Teacher. Keli is an extremely confident woman exercising excellent self-discipline to create strength needed to overcome traumas and obstacles. She wears her heart on her sleeve and is truly as authentic as one can be. She can easily be described as an Earth Angel always finding the best in a person or a situation. Children and animals are drawn to her white light with high vibrational energy. Keli is a true social chameleon and those around her are at ease sharing their thoughts and feelings. Her positive energy and enthusiasm precede her entrance into a room.
