About Kelley Kosow
Kelley Kosow is a Master Integrative Life Coach and Chief Executive Officer of The Ford Institute, where she is a leader and teacher of emotional education, shadow work, and personal mastery. Kelley Kosow was handpicked and personally trained by Debbie Ford to lead The Ford Institute and continue the legacy of this life changing work. Since the death of Debbie Ford in 2013, Kelley has become the leader of all of the trainings, the creator of all of the new content and teachings and runs the day-to-day activities at the Ford Institute. There are almost 2,000 Ford Institute Certified Coaches in the US and abroad. Kelley Kosow is now the face of this organization. She is the only person who was authorized by Debbie Ford to lead her groundbreaking Shadow Process Workshop in English. Kelley created and leads free semi-monthly “Shadow Talk” calls and writes The Ford Institute’s bi weekly newsletter. Kelley also helps manage social outreach on Twitter and Facebook for the Ford Institute with over 200,000 fans combined.
Kelley is known for being a "kick-ass" coach who uses her quick wit, laser sharp insight, genuine examples, and ruthlessly compassionate style to transform people’s lives. Truly gifted in supporting people to realize their limiting patterns and beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors, Kelley is a relationship expert who specializes in improving people’s relationship with others and themselves so that they can begin to create the life they’ve always wanted.
Kelley is a graduate of Brown University and the University of Miami Law School and was formerly a practicing attorney and family law mediator. Though she achieved great success in her career, she felt “stuck” and was seeking something more when she discovered Debbie Ford’s powerful work through the Ford Institute. After Kelley began working with Debbie, she knew that a new path had opened up for her and became a staff member in 2007.
Kelley founded the company Go Goddess!™ Inc., which created games, books, and seminars to empower, inspire, and entertain women and girls. She has been featured in Oprah Magazine as someone who could “Dream it, Do it,” as well as In Style, People, Working Mother, Latina, NY Times, and LA Times. Kelley has also appeared on "The Balancing Act" and Better.tv.
In 2013, Conde Nast Traveler "The Spa Guide 2013," published a feature entitled "Spotlight On Miami," which lists Miami’s "hottest feel good trends." The article featuring Kelley is entitled "Miracle Therapy" and reads, “She’s ridiculously pretty and glamorous and if you can forgive her this then life coach Kelley Kosow is a powerhouse. Smart, slightly neurotic locals can’t stop chattering about how she has transformed their lives. She is incredibly inspiring and seems to have the experience, empathy, and energy to encourage you to take the first small steps of change towards the life you crave.”
Kelley is currently working on her first book on The Integrity Master Plan – Seven Steps To Living the Freedom of An Authentic Life.
Kelley is the mother of three grown daughters and lives in Miami, Florida.
