66: Two Hometown Gals Who Have A Love For Their City And Their New Careers
Play • 41 min

As explained in previous episodes, Jill Devine is best known for her previous career. She spent over 20 years in radio in the St. Louis market. Born and raised in the St. Louis area, being able to start her career and end her career in her hometown is a big deal. The same scenario is true for this week’s guest, Karen Kelly.

Karen and Jill worked together, briefly. Jill wanted Karen to be on the podcast when they both worked in radio together because Karen’s personal life had numerous life lessons that could be shared with others, but it didn’t work out. In hindsight, Jill’s glad it didn’t work out because the conversation TODAY was beautiful.

In this episode, the ladies talked about:

  • Their Faith and how it’s a nonnegotiable
  • Lifting women up and giving a compliment, but with sincerity
  • Their forever love of radio

The ladies also discussed their career changes now that they’re out of radio. In Episode 50: Making The Pivot From The Corporate World To Entrepreneurship, Jill talked to Sarah Bernard. After she had her three children, Sarah wanted more flexibility in her career and made the decision to leave her corporate job and venture into entrepreneurship. Sarah is a Luxury Home Realtor & Second Home Specialist and Karen now works for Sarah! It’s the perfect fit, as Karen has a lifetime of experience in sales, combined with a love of beautiful places and spaces. Sarah Bernard Realty, powered by RedKey Realty Leaders, specializes in residential real estate in St. Louis City and County, St. Charles and local favorite, Innsbrook Resort.

You can contact Karen by calling 314.435.2483 or email - KarenKelly@sarahbernardrealestate.com

Jill would like to acknowledge and recognize the hard work moms put in on the daily. It can be a thankless job at times, and Jill wants these moms to know their worth, so she created the Supermom Shoutout. This week’s Supermom Shoutout goes to Cynthia of St. Louis. Her sister, Jennifer, nominated her and said:

I would like to acknowledge my sister, Cynthia. She is a Supermom for so many reasons. Cynthia is a high-achieving career-driven woman who excels at balancing that part of her life with what she gives back to her family and community. Not only does she work at Moneta in financial planning, Cynthia has built a family with her husband by having 3 great kids who have incredible values, all modeled by their mother. While achieving in the business world and having babies at the same time, Cynthia also found time to volunteer as a recreational and competitive soccer coach, donating many hours to not only the technical development of boys and girls, but also those great things that sports can give such as a good work ethic, challenging oneself, being a good teammate, displaying sportsmanship, learning how to win and lose with grace, and so much more! In this arena, Cynthia excelled at being “more than just a coach” to her players, building bonds they will remember for the rest of their lives. Recently, Cynthia has decided to take her positive influence further into the world by committing to running every day (no matter what). Beyond this, she has shared this commitment to her Facebook community with positivity, challenging her friends to challenge themselves in some way every day, and uses this platform to raise money for various charities. Watching the comments, you can see that she has inspired many with this journey, and additional shared messages of positivity. My little sister is not only a Supermom, she’s a Rockstar!

Cynthia - YOU are seen and YOU are supported!

To nominate a Supermom (or you can nominate yourself) email hello@jilldevine.com. Submit the name of the Supermom, where they're from, and a brief description as to why Jill should shout out this particular Supermom.
