Kelli has been with Wise Wonders before it even had a name. Kelli loves that Wise Wonders is a place to celebrate children through engagement, curiosity and trial and error when exploring science related concepts. “I love that parents, grandparents, and other caregivers have a meeting place to take children for an indoor, educational environment.” When not at the Museum, Kelli loves to read, cook, train and compete in triathlons, visit museums, travel, and spend time with her family.
