About Kelli

Thank you for taking a peek at what could be an awesome shared adventure! My passion lies in maximizing quality of life. Professionally, this has taken on many shapes and forms. To date, I have 11 years of university teaching experience in health and human physiology, along with an expired K-12 Iowa Teaching License that I am unable to maintain without returning to K-12 teaching. I also have experience teaching/tutoring the following topics/courses: elementary reading and math, English writing and speaking, Spanish writing and speaking, studying and test-taking strategies, and a multitude of university courses (anatomy and physiology, kinesiology, Spanish, college success/rhetoric, calculus, college algebra, and many others). I also have experience in working with individuals with disabilities.

My style is one in which people feel instantly comfortable and confident. I am an expert at meeting you where you are and envisioning creative and enjoyable ways to make your journey both successful and empowering. In addition to academic/written/spoken topics, I have years of experience in business development/entrepreneurship, along with coaching a wide variety of sports and leisure activities. I have the heart of a servant with a passion for helping people live an awesome life. Please feel free to reach out with questions or requests for collaboration!
