Kelly's Doula Profile
Kelly Carrington graduated from ICT Northumberland College in 2001 with a diploma in massage therapy. Upon his graduation, he became a registered massage therapist with the Massage Therapy Association of Nova Scotia (MTANS) and he continues to be an active member with this professional association. For six years, Kelly practiced massage therapy in a busy wellness clinic in downtown Halifax during which he earned a solid reputation with a steady following of loyal clients. However, his goals changed as his family grew, and he sensed it was time to evolve as a massage therapist by venturing out on his own as an entrepreneur. In 2007, he proudly started Evolution Massage Therapy, a mobile massage therapy business.
In 2012, Kelly started his journey to become a certified birth doula through Doula of North America (DONA) and in May 2014, became the first male to be certified through DONA International in Canada. Kelly loves working with families and always looks forward to helping families make the transition to parenthood.
Aside from his professional life, Kelly is passionate about his partner and their three sons and he enjoys spending time with his family, friends and generally being a professional smartass. When he is not chasing three manimals, providing massage therapy or attending a birthday, you can find him canoeing, gardening, camping, snowboarding, reading, and enjoying all that life has to offer.
