What People are Saying (Press & Testimonials)

Here’s just a sampling of press, awards and biggole “thank you” letters Kelli has gotten over the years…

“More than ever, Kelli [current work showcases] her ability to mix nonchalant shock with perfectly timed candor. Part storytelling, part therapy, part cultural commentary, and always hilarious, Kelli manages to be both a true personality and someone you’re forever rooting for. And if you ask nicely she might even make you cookies.”
