Kelley Gunter

Kelley Gunter is an internationally acclaimed speaker, life coach, and author of the compelling memoir, You Have Such a Pretty Face. Gunter, who describes herself as a “survivor, emotional warrior, and connoisseur of comfort food,” says that her “painful journey to find peace and self-worth began with a 243-pound weight loss, included many dark moments of despair, and eventually brought me to my knees.” In a message that is particularly resonant in these trying times, Gunter says on her homepage, “When the world says, ‘give up,’ Hope whispers, ‘try it one more time.’”

Kelley graduated from college with a bachelor’s degree in sociology, a master’s degree in counseling, and was a licensed social worker for 28 years. In 2017, following a lengthy career in social services, she began writing and speaking full time. She speaks candidly about the numerous addictions she developed as a result of the unhealed trauma she suffered from a childhood riddled with sexual abuse. She digs into the correlated shame that “strangled the hope out of my life.” Those feelings of shame and powerlessness contributed to not only her initial weight gain but the cross addictions she developed following her initial weight loss and 18-year successful maintenance of that loss.

Kelley’s story of survival and writing have been featured internationally on The Daily Mail TV Show, The Daily Mail Website, Australian National News, and People Magazine South Africa, and nationally in Recovery Today Magazine, Love What Matters, and Thought Catalog, among others. She has made appearances on LA Talk Radio, Good Morning Cincinnati, and Living Dayton. She is a co-creator of the Binge-Free Babes Project, creator of the Facebook group, The Trauma Tribe, administrator in the Facebook group, Victims of Violent Crime, and author of the popular blog, Ramblings from the Homecoming Queen of Crazy Town. She is currently finishing her second memoir, The Homecoming Queen of Crazy Town.
