Aloha, my name is Kelli. I was born and raised in Liliha; currently, I live in Maunawili. I am a proud McKinley Tiger. I received both my Bachelor's & Master's Degrees in Social Work from the University of Hawaii at Mānoa. I'm happily married to my extremely supportive husband, Logan. I am the youngest of four children and love spending time with my family. I'm so lucky to get to bring my parents to kupuna program or on huakaʻi and create memories that are so wonderful.
I've been working at Kula No Na Poʻe Hawaii o Papakōlea, Kewalo, Kalawahine since January 2016. I started my journey at Kula as a Social Work Practicum student and luckily I was blessed to continue on as an employee. I've been able to tap into many different programs utilizing my various skills; I assisted with the Papakōlea Fire Academy and now I'm the Assistant Program Coordinator with the Kupuna Community Care Network II (KCCN) program.
When I'm not working at KULA, I work part-time at Sunglass Hut. If I have a day off, I enjoy being a stationery addict, joining planner meet-ups, and being crafty. I enjoy my weekly bowling league nights and spending time with my husband. Along with being a planner nerd, I am also a huge Disney fan, Pokemon Go player, and Comic Con/Kawai Kon adventurer, I love going on vacation, especially to Disney with my husband!
