Tuesday Takeover: Meet Kelsey Guffanti


Where do you live in Palm Beach County?

I live in Lake Clarke Shores, just south of West Palm Beach. It has such a small-town feel, it is a beautiful place to live! We moved to this neighborhood almost two years ago.

How long have you lived here?

I have lived in Palm Beach County since 2014 when I moved down to South Florida from Ohio! Go Buckeyes!

What do you love about living in Palm Beach County?

Is it too obvious if I say the beach? The warm weather? I just love to be outside and I really enjoy the beautiful weather.  I honestly can’t imagine a better place to live!

How many children do you have?

One baby girl! We are blessed with our little Clare.  

What are their ages?

Clare is 14 months old.

What is your job description?

I wear MANY hats when it comes to my job description! I am absolutely loving being a full-time mama to Clare, but I also juggle a lot outside of my time with her as well.  Before Clare arrived, I was a STEM/Design teacher at a local private school in Palm Beach Gardens.  I created an amazing program for my students to learn all about problem-solving, technology, 3D printing, robotics, and more! I returned from my maternity leave on the SAME DAY we started teaching online last March.  What a whirlwind! I still work for the school in a limited capacity and look forward to my future there. But as if that doesn’t keep me busy enough, in the last year I have built up my yard sign business, Celebrations! Sign Company, from scratch! I absolutely LOVE it! I get to see so many smiling faces when we surprise our clients with fun signs in their front yard to help celebrate their special occasions.  Plus I design all of the graphics myself, so I still get to use my design expertise! 

What is your favorite activity to do in Palm Beach with your family?

We love boating on the canals in Lake Clarke Shores! Taking a little evening cruise with the family makes for a perfect end to the day!

Best piece of parenting advice you have received:

Enjoy every moment with my little one because time goes by so fast.  I am just savoring every moment watching her grow and learn new things every day!
