Kelli is the recipient of the Accent on Excellence Award for her work throughout her community, and she presents, locally and nationally, on topics having to do with health, wellness, mindset and performance. In 2013, she was honored to be a presenter for the first TedXUtica program.
Kelli’s life purpose is to offer unwavering support and inspiration for people to achieve their goals, and she does that with enthusiasm in whatever she pursues. However, she finds her greatest joy in the time spent with her family – Graeme, Marcus, Caitlin, Katie, Cameron and Kira – and their overly exuberant, and completely loveable, dog, Cody.
