We had the good fortune of connecting with Kelly Dowdle and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kelly, how have you been keeping yourself busy during quarantine?
I am learning piano on a keyboard. It’s super therapeutic and I love singing and writing. It’s by far been the one thing in quarantine I am going to keep doing…. and I plan to finally start singing post-quarantine

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I am an actress, model, singer (now), and entrepreneur. I knew I wanted to do all these things but really started pursuing it fully when I was 30 after getting married young and that ending. I’ve learned that it takes incredible courage to truly follow our heart especially when it’s the road less travelled but I finally feel aligned with who I was born to be. Now it gets exciting

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I live in soho and I love this area of New York and TriBeCa. It’s the Mecca of great shopping and restaurants. My favorite little spot is The Guild in soho and I love Raouls which is a classic New York spot.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My mother deserves a shoutout for raising me to be a confident fierce young woman. I’ve always been encouraged to follow my dreams and to not compare my life to other people. She also taught me to not compete with others because no one is me! I also am so grateful for my connection to spirituality. It’s something that has encouraged me to trust my gut and follow my intuition, which I believe we all have the deep ability to do if we listen.
