Kitty’s Professional Journey
Kitty Chambliss is a polyamorous, sex-positive author, educator, relationship coach (ICF-Certified Master Coach), speaker and activist who has been the founder and creator of this website and revolution, Loving Without Boundaries since December of 2012 with over 300 blog posts to date – including many personal interviews. Kink-friendly Kitty founded the blog and website originally as an outlet and one-stop toolkit for everything that she was learning on her own polyamorous journey. But she quickly realized that what she was creating was a resource for the poly and poly-curious – to form a community, share experiences, and help guide each other on their respective journeys of poly-relationship exploration. It became clear that even more was needed to support this under-served community. And Kitty’s passion to serve others lead her to become a certified relationship coach, with a specialty in unconventional relationships.
Loving Without Boundaries has received accolades and interest from CNN, ENM Magazine, and the likes of bloggers such as Multiamory, SoloPoly.net, Postmodern Woman, Seattle Poly Chick, Professor Polyamory, A Poly Heart, Mental Illness and Non-Monogamy, Poly Aphrodite, A Wry Perspective, Lifestyle Gambler, Threesomes and Variations and Poly In Columbus; groups such as Polyamory Network, Swingtowns and Beyond The Love; and media agencies such as NYC’s Barcroft Media, and UK’s Mercury Press and Caters News and many more. She was thrilled to be nominated for the Bad Girl Bloggers Award from SukieJones at Clean Cut, All American.
Kitty has also spoken on the topic of ethical non-monogamy / polyamory / open relationships at seminars and talk shows, and welcomes the opportunity to present at your next event. She is available to speak on the following topics or will create a customized presentation based on your suggestions:
