About Me

Hello and welcome!

I am a writer, poet, registered nurse, health educator, and speaker. I write under the pen name, Kelly Huntson, formerly known as Nurse Kelly on this site.

I pursue my passion for creative writing and poetry through this blog, my writing group, and by attending writing workshops and conferences. I write nearly every day.

In my professional life, I have worked for over ten years in case management and corporate wellness where I provide individual consultations and employee education with respect to disease and lifestyle management.

In addition to my nursing degree, I have a BA in Communications and several certifications including ongoing training in cognitive behavior therapy and legal nurse consulting.

In my personal life, I have been married for twenty-five years. Simply put, I adore the life my husband and I share with our two incredible kids and beloved dog.

What else. I love to write! Expressing myself creatively brings me great joy. Writing pays tribute to my vivid imagination by attending to all my dimensions; the reason why ‘All of Me’ is my tagline. Through my writing practice, I hope to capture the deep impressions of experiences in my life with comparatively powerful words.

I compose free-verse poetry on the blog more than any other writing form due to the freedom I find in its structure. A healer by nature, I have a deep appreciation for poetry and attribute my own growth as a writer to its therapeutic effects. 

And lastly, if and when I disappear for a while, it’s usually because my healing self has tethered my creative self to something work-related or some other pursuit. But when the wine is good, and the music is playing, and the light falls across my keyboard just so, I’ll probably pop up in your reader or email with something new.

Thanks so much for the visit. I hope you will come back soon!

“Creativity is great medicine for all, both the creator and the one who experiences it. It prevents disease and promotes wellness. It is not indulgence, it is fundamental to medical practice.”
