Kelly has made the difference in my sons acting career. Her approach allows him to be himself and enjoy the work. As an actress herself she understands what’s needed and communicates it in a way which allows Jason to have fun.
Kelly is an amazing acting coach! She really knows her stuff–comedy,drama… ANY type of material. She always has great ideas and is really fun to work with. We get excited whenever we see her in a movie, too! So glad we found her!
Kelly has been instrumental in helping Annie book jobs through her coaching techniques. She is really good at knowing where the Annie should go with character development. Always encouraging and patient, Kelly has been a God send. Thanks, Kelly, you are the best!
What I love about Kelly the most is that she really cares about Mavrick and his career – being honest when her opinion is asked. It’s not just about money or how your time is up, its about doing your best and really delivering a believable tape. I know she wants him to succeed as much as she wants her own children to succeed, and that genuine love and trust is what has made Mavrick’s auditions reach a place of comfort even in uncomfortable scenes. When they finish coaching he feels good about himself, the audition and his choices. She has taught him so much and will always be someone he wants to call and run his lines with. We are forever thankful.
Kelly brings the script to life for Summer. She is very professional and helpful with giving Summer advice and listening to her input. I can rely on Kelly to help Summer prepare while making her comfortable with who she is as an actress. We are very grateful to know and work with her!
Kelly understands the industry and the auditioning process. She also understands kids (having four in the industry, herself). She asks her students the right questions to help them understand the material, and challenges/adjusts them to bring out the best auditions. She thinks outside the box and asks, “what is everyone else NOT going to do?” so her students’ auditions will stand out. She is also an amazing reader (and every actor understands the importance of that) because she doesn’t just read, she acts. Basically, Kelly gives her acting students everything they need to succeed.
Kelly is an invaluable part of my girls successful acting careers! Who better to coach actors than a successful tv/film actor that understands the business? Kelly is able to draw out compelling, specific, interesting choices from my children to create powerful and watchable performances. My children have booked series regular roles, lead feature film roles and guest star roles thanks to Kelly’s guidance and ability to make an amazing audition tape. Kelly’s positivity and sense of humor create a comfortable environment for my girls to let go and really live in the scene. She is absolutely the best!
