She holds a Masters in Religious Studies, and is an ordained interfaith minister. Her work is Nature-based, and she honors the paths of animism, Seiðr, and Druidry. She works closely with the Elder Futhark Runes and divine Nature Spirits of eastern North Carolina. Her shamanic practice is Soul Intent Arts, and she is vigorously involved with the worlds in and around her.

In 2013, Kelley had the honor of being named a Wisdom Keeper by Shaman Portal. The Oprah Show featured her to honor the life of survivor and author, Truddi Chase.

One of the things I've found in doing soul work with others is value in extended work. Few people benefit from a single session, and most find that after a session they want sustained interaction and opportunity to go into more depth. Through Patreon I've created a way to accomplish that. You can choose the level of sessions, ongoing mentoring or support, healing and reading sessions, as well as access to The Weekly Rune and other runic musings. The services I offer through Patreon are the same as those on my site. The difference is the cost spread over time, with a set interval of sessions. You know when your sessions will be ahead of time, and you don't have to wait to get on my schedule. If you'd like to explore this approach to sustained support, visit Patreon.
