Mentioned in the show:
Kelsey was one of the first people I followed on Instagram when I moved to Nashville. I found myself continuously inspired by her positive outlook on life and eye for catching real moments. After getting the chance to talk to Kelsey and hear more of her story, she is even more of an inspiration to me. She is one of those people that can walk in a room, or a conversation and immediately make you feel comfortable in your own skin. That is why she is so successful. She calms the people around her and is unapologetically herself in the process.
