Quinn Kelly | Marriage & Family Therapist

Hey, Baby Chick™ friends! My name is Quinn and I’m a wife, mother, and blogger with a degree in journalism and a license in marriage and family therapy. And, to put it simply, I’m a girly girl surrounded by many men whom I adore—Jesus, my hubby, and my four amazing boys (whom I prayed for from the time I was tiny.)

As a therapist, I am incredibly passionate about helping people have the best relationships they can have especially in their marriage and with their children because to me there is nothing more precious than family. When I write, I hope to encourage other moms with laughter and honesty and help remind them that the best part about motherhood has nothing to do with being the “perfect” mom or raising the “perfect” kids, but instead enjoying yourself and your children along the way.

When I’m not writing or cruising the streets in my super attractive mini-van, I love eating sweets, being outside, listening to music, cleaning (judge me if you must), wearing big jewelry and choreographing dances in my head while I run. If you want to read even more from me, follow me on my personal blog Sanctification and Spitup. You can also read more about me and my story here
