Kayleigh’s personal struggle with anxiety, insomnia, and stress-related digestive problems brought her to the practice of self-compassion and the study of human well-being. In 2012, she completed her master in applied positive psychology at the University of Pennsylvania under Dr. Martin Seligman. Her research focused on how the ways in which we are motivating ourselves, whether through an inner dialogue that is harsh and critical or kind supportive, affects the brain and nervous system, as well as our capacity to feel positive emotions.

Today, Kayleigh is honored to share the science-based tools that not only freed her from the anxiety she suffered, but also allowed her to build a peaceful, engaged life. Kayleigh is a sought-after speaker and workshop facilitator for businesses, hospitals, and schools. Her expertise spans a variety of topics: mental resilience, meditation, nutrition, motivation, and happiness. For more information, please visit:
