Trudy Jacobson Presents: Kellie Clark, VP/CFO, Mom and Woman of Faith


Kellie has proved time and again that she can manage fear and handle anything. But life was truly elevated when she embraced faith and made it a foundation for life.

Many people worldwide, if not a majority, are satisfied with mediocrity. They find a comfortable place, literally and figuratively, and settle in for the long haul. They meet their basic needs, find relative happiness, and go about their business daily.

But then there are those select few who are not satisfied with mediocrity. Instead, they seek challenges, seemingly impossible feats, and bigger and better opportunities. And they won’t rest until they find it. And when they do find it, they go on to look for the next challenge.

And that person is Kellie Clark.

Kellie has experienced a lot in her lifetime, both successes and failures. But everything changed for her just a few years ago.

“I can tell you that since November 18th, 2018, I gave my life to Christ, and that day, I never looked back,” Kellie said. “When we know that we have God in our hearts and in our families, that guides the decisions that we make. And that helps us in the times that we do have some fear.”

Fear has been a constant theme in Kellie’s life because she was never satisfied with her routine. But she has learned to control and manage that fear – with Jiu-Jitsu.

“I’ve learned a lot from that sport [Jiu-Jitsu] because it’s so uncomfortable. Especially for women, to have somebody in your space, on top of you, feeling like you can’t breathe, like you’re constantly panicking. To be able to work through those situations is so important,” Kellie said.

She continued, “You learn to conquer a lot of those fears. We have them in our personal lives, in relationships, in business. You have them as a parent. If you can show your kids that you can go do something head-on, something that is scary and

intimidating, and you can fight through that and come out okay, what else can you conquer that day?”


A significant source of inspiration for Kellie is her children. She wants to ensure she is doing everything she can to provide for them now and in the future. She wants them equipped to handle life’s challenges by being the example she wants them to follow.

But she admits it’s not always easy.

“I got up at 4:30 this morning because I had shit to do. It’s just what you have to do to get it done, and it’s not always great,” Kellie said. “When you train yourself every single day, ‘I’m going to get up when it’s difficult’ and, ‘I’m going to do the hard things whether I like it or not,’ those uncomfortable things are just normal. You become comfortable being uncomfortable.”

Another part of Kellie’s success and philosophy is to continue improving daily because it helps her stay positive and focused. And it’s advice every woman in America could use.

“For me, it’s just a conscious choice to try to make myself better 1% every single day in something. I have to learn something; I have to get better at something every single day,” she said. “When I have those wins, I think that’s what reprograms your mind and keeps the negative thoughts out and keeps you thinking, ‘I can accomplish more.'”

Kellie continues to elevate her company, American Threat Assessment Consulting, as the VP and CFO. You can connect with her on Linked In.
