About KelsC.

After a decade in management consulting and traveling for work I’m still excited when my status results in upgrades.  Spending so many nights in one hotel chain I bought their entire bedding package to make it feel like I was always at home: box spring, mattress, sheets, pillows, shams, and comforter.

A native Texan and a Texas A&M business school grad I started my consulting career with Epic (the Healthcare tech company) in Madison, WI in the middle of a long, cold winter.  Talk about needing a whole new wardrobe! Since then I’ve worked across the healthcare and oil & gas industries with consulting firms including Alvarez & Marsal, Sagacious Consultants, and Accenture.

I enjoy building companies (both my own and others – hence the career in consulting) and recently launched Säfik Advsrs, a tech startup-focused consulting firm founded to support new venture sustainable growth. I also own KelsC. Consulting – a consultancy focused on the continued improvement of both professional service firms and the development and growth of individuals.

Several years ago I sublet my Houston apartment for three months so I could ski winter weekends in Park City, Utah.  Last year I made Park City my home base and when in town with a few free hours you’ll find me skiing, hiking or keeping up with my black lab River on the trails.

All my best,

Hi All! 

I’ve missed you, but have been quiet out of respect for all that has been going on in the world - a world where suits are less important than sensitivity. 

However, amidst the recent social media silence there are a few things in progress that I’m excited about, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to meet with @parkcitytv tomorrow to discuss! 

Tune in for my live interview on the Mountain Connections morning show! We’ll be covering the background of @theconsultantscloset, future growth goals, how the pandemic has affected dressing for the professional work world, and how to remain professional while working from home and balancing personal priorities. 

8 AM MDT (Replay at 6 pm & 10 pm)  Comcast Channel 17, 102, or 36  Livestream - PCTV.TV 

All my best,

KelsC.
