Keli grew up in Wheeling, IL. In 2019 she graduated from Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa with a BA in political science. After graduating, she spent a year in Paris as a nanny and has since moved to Chicago. She has previously served with children’s literacy and arts programs through AmeriCorps in Iowa, and through that work she developed strong values for community love and holistic youth development.
