C.K. Collins

"It's not where you go, it's what you learn along the way."

C.K. Collins, aka Kelly, weaves tales of personal and professional breakthrough from her business successes to her courageous solo voyages. Kelly was an award-winning entrepreneurial news publisher who sold her hyperlocal news publishing company to take a two year travel sabbatical. 

Believing that travel feeds the soul and grows the heart and mind, Kelly embarked on a two-year journey which ended with her writing her first book. Her travels included destinations such as Utah, Grand Canyon, Buenos Aires, Patagonia, Portugese Camino, Spanish Camino de Santiago, Italy, New England and a 30-day sailing rally from Los Angeles to La Paz, Mexico. 

BUT, it’s not where she went that matters, it’s what she learned and what she shares with your audience.


C.K. “Kelly” Collins is an intelligent, earnest and skilled presenter. Kelly’s ability to show compassion for others and her own deep courage to be vulnerable is a super power that she has harnessed to help other women rise above life’s inevitable challenges to forge a brighter path forward.
