Kelli will be graduating with her Doctorate in Audiology in May 2017 from the University of Northern Colorado. She is completing her fourth and final year of internship with us – her last stop before graduation! Kelli is a native of South Dakota, and earned a B.S. in Communication Sciences and Disorders from the University of South Dakota. She also has completed internships with the Brighton School District, as well as the Veteran’s Affairs Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
While growing up with a unilateral hearing loss, Kelli became interested in audiology. Eventually, after several unsuccessful surgeries, she was fitted with a hearing instrument she wears regularly. She is open about sharing her experiences, and relates to patients facing the challenges of hearing loss. She enjoys working one-on-one with each patient, and continues to learn from each interaction with patients and families. Kelli is very capable when it comes to fitting, follow up, and caring for our patients
Kelli resides in Westminster with her fiancé, Zachari, where they enjoy spending time biking, and exploring the great Colorado outdoors. She and Zachari are busy planning their September 2017 wedding.
