About Me

My Story

Kelly created this book series to help other children with differences understand that you are no longer an object to be stared at; you’re a person if you add your voice. This book is a true story taken from her own life. It represents what she has taught her daughter to do when someone is staring at her. Kelly is an advocate for kindness and acceptance for everyone and is committed to changing the world one face at a time.

Kelly grew up in a small town in Ontario, Canada. She loves animals of all kinds and would take in a squirrel if it needed rescuing. As a child, Kelly always enjoyed writing short stories and journaling but ultimately found love within the fashion industry. She decided to turn her book Hi, I’m Me into a series in hopes her stores will help others dealing with the same situations as her and her family.

Kelly lives in a suburb of Toronto in Canada with her husband, daughter and their one year old Puppy named Sammy. Her daughter was born with Treacher-Collins Syndrome.

"A must-have for teachers, parents, and caregivers. Hi, I'm Me in Kindergarten encourages young children to use their voice to gain confidence and feel proud of their unique differences.

"It is so incredibly important to teach our children valuable lessons from an early age. This is a lovely story about going to Kindergarten and meeting new friends who at times will say something that is not so nice. Our children have a choice to accept or reject these comments. This book gives children the confidence to believe in themselves."

Hi, I’m Me in Kindergarten

Later, I got to bring home my art to show my family. I told them about all the fun I had.
