Kelli has spent most of her life around basketball in many capacities. At around age 10, her father saw the disparity in opportunities for females in the sport throughout the Northeast Ohio region & began what would later become, one of the most successful nonprofit youth sports programs. Growing up in the business, she has experienced every role possible; Player, Coach, Referee, Director and most importantly, Basketball Mom.
Kelli has been hired by numerous companies to direct their basketball events throughout her career at both the local, state and national levels. Kelli had her first opportunity to join the NSGA Family at the 2013 Games in Cleveland, Ohio and continued assisting at the 2015 Games. For the 2017 Games Kelli will join our team as the new National Chair.
