WOMEN ARE: Resilient Transparent Risk-Takers Non-Conforming Courageous Real Worthy Grateful Authentic ENOUGH

Hello and welcome!

Welcome to Kelly Chapman’s Official Website.

Ask Kelly how to best describe herself, and she will say, “I am a multi-faceted and flawed diamond.  But the pressure used to shape the diamond is what creates the brilliant shine.”

How many people do you know have this level of life experience:  Singing in various venues all over the world, publishing a book, running several small businesses, consulting for other small businesses and non-profits, serving as an executive at top Fortune 500 companies, creating a lifetime of ongoing philanthropy, and starting a non-profit that serves people in need?  Yet, Kelly’s ability to walk down various paths simultaneously, winning awards and honors for her leadership is not what motivates her.   Only “purpose” drives her.

It is not uncommon to see her marching for the rights of people of color, for women, or for the homeless.  Or passing out food and clothing on Laurel Canyon Road or Skid Row.  Kelly built a foundation for purpose in 2000, and she has been diligent in that effort ever since.  If you want to think about life differently, stay in touch!

“I strive for purpose, not power.”
