Kelli grew up in Bee, Nebraska. She started her nursing career at the age of 16 as a Certified Nursing Assistant. Quickly, nursing and helping others became a passion.
In 2003 she earned her Associate’s Degree in Nursing from Southeast Community College in Lincoln. She worked for 11 years for BryanLGH Medical Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. There, she cared for a diverse inpatient population including oncology, urology, women’s health, alcohol detoxification, general surgery and inpatient hospice.
Kelli graduated in 2004 with her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from the University of Nebraska Medical Center. In 2011 she completed her graduate education at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and is Nationally Board Certified in Adult Health and Illness by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
Kelli’s post-graduate experience began in a robust internal medicine clinic. It has more recently transitioned toward functional and regenerative medicine as the desire for more natural therapies rises. Over the last two years she has studied functional medicine at the School of Applied Functional Medicine and continued her education in regenerative medicine with the use of Platelet Rich Fibrin therapy for joint health.
Kelli was on the regional speaker’s bureau for Veridia Diagnostics from 2016 to 2018. In this role, she educated other providers about the benefits of advanced cardiometabolic laboratory testing to aid in the prevention of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
Kelli has attended several PALETTE trainings for esthetics for use in Remedy Health’s MedSpa and is a seasoned injector of neurotoxins such as Botox, Xeomin, and Jeaveau as well as hyaluronic fillers such as Juvederm and Voluma. She has attended training and frequently administers Bellafill injections.
Kelli’s Personal Practice Philosophy
Kelli believes that most people have been fed the wrong information for several decades, especially when it comes to nutrition and pharmaceuticals. She believes that if she can give people small action steps with each visit, they can change little by little. These small changes will eventually make a huge impact on her patients’ health.
Kelli enjoys spending time with her husband and their four children. She loves to travel when they are able, and enjoys watching her children play sports and dance. She also leads the Greater Omaha Nurse Practitioners’ group, helping provide free education to her fellow local Nurse Practitioners on a monthly basis.
