Meet Kelli

Welcome to my site; I am delighted to share with you my writing playground. Here, you will find an evolving writing portfolio and candid blog posts on motherhood, relationships, feminism, and social good.

I may publish once or twice a week, and sometimes not at all –it can be a bit unpredictable because I am committed to authenticity– so if you don’t want to miss anything when I do write, subscribe to my mailing list to get an email when I post something new.

Kelli is a writer, advocate and single mom of two from the Midwest.
