Hi, I'm Kelley Anne

Licensed therapist, social worker, burnout expert; proud quirky, creative millennial and creator of the Burn Bright Blueprint™

I know you’re in a tough spot, because I’ve been there.

Even as a little girl, I already knew: I wanted to help people. I was good at it, and it brought me joy. Sound familiar?

I became a social worker in 2006, but by 2009 I was burned out and traumatized. I was disconnected from family and friends. My personal life was nonexistent and I would spend some days crying hysterically over my clients and other days numb and detached from my work. I knew something was very wrong with me, but denial and poor coping skills kept me from finding out the source of my pain.

Even more disheartening was that my professional community gave me no answers. Everyone around me was working hard helping others, but they had no idea how to help themselves.

So instead of reaching out, I retreated within myself, where I became my own worst enemy, telling myself that if I cared about helping people (or my work), I wouldn’t be so bitter. I wouldn’t be so disconnected. Several medical diagnoses and 50 lbs. later, I finally accepted treatment, and it changed my life (no exaggeration). The guilt I’d been carrying—both physically and emotionally—lifted. I felt excited again to be helping others.

My experiences made me realize that I am just one of the thousands, maybe millions, who feel the same. Though I felt alone, I wasn’t. I learned as many skills as I could to fight against burnout. Once I knew better, I became confident that if I practiced what I learned, I would never feel burned out again. I certified myself in compassion fatigue and burnout, and Burn Bright was born.

Burn Bright is a labor of love where I take the lessons I’ve learned and combine them with the training I’ve received to help other people like you (and me!) stay passionate about the work we love.

Burn Bright is the way I take care of the people who take care of the world.

Because here’s the thing:

How can you serve others when you’re completely depleted yourself?

I was put on this earth to help professional helpers live brilliantly bright lives free from burnout.

I see you. I am you. And it’s my honor to serve you.

I;m so excited to meet you!

Can’t I have both?? This one is hard. I guess the tropics but only because I like the heat.
