About Us

Kellie founded Career and Parenthood after recognising from her own experience that there isn’t enough support for women through this transformational journey of becoming a mother and navigating maternity leave with a career she loved. 

Already qualified and working in the leadership coaching space Kellie started to work with women returning from maternity leave quickly identifying that the limited support on return from maternity leave was significantly impacting women's careers as well as impact the business. 

Having spent many years in Senior HR Roles in well known and global organisations, Kellie is well placed to support HR teams and leaders to retain talent, build family friendly inclusive cultures and support employee wellbeing.
