Most recently, Kelli was honored as one of the Top 40 executives under the age of 40 in her area. Still, she finds time to spend with her two house bunnies; her husband, Daniel; and her 1-year-old son, Nicolas. But, lately she has not found as much time to enjoy SCUBA diving, wine collecting, boating or private pilot lessons. Kelli can be reached at KelliA@ConnectOS.com.
