GUEST SPEAKER

Colleen Kelly Mellor sees life’s difficulties as opportunities for growth. With humor and empathy learned via her own challenging life, she shares her views with the following audiences:

Those Suffering Life Crises. I give those dealing with difficult life situations reason to hope since my own life presented non-stop challenges.

Teachers and/or Teachers in Training: A champion of teachers, I’ve taught all levels of students from kindergarten through post-secondary (senior workshops are my oldest.) My regular Op-Eds on teaching, education, and crazy life events appear in the Pulitzer-Prize-winning Providence Journal.

Retirees who consider leaving the state to go elsewhere: As six-figure realtor (my second career), I offer tips on buying/selling homes, showing how to maximize profit and avoid loss (Boomerrrang, my book, will soon be available.) I tell how we chose our retirement home and why we returned to Rhode Island after 9+ years in one of the trendiest retirement towns in America.

Children’s audiences: Husband (a 30 year, award-winning trucker) and I present before children audiences, demonstrating our country’s vastness and quirkiness. (Children reading our Grandpa and the Truck books is a prerequisite for our guest-appearance, since students participate in the lively show.)

Strictly Seniors: Following my mantra of “We’re Not Done Yet” I challenge all 55+ to take the incredible gifts and talents acquired over a lifetime to go higher (I became a published writer much later in life.)
