For Kelli, a legal career is her way of making a lasting impact.

The law has its own language, and a desire to help people interpret that language drives Kelli’s work. She knows that people often need legal services because they have an idea they want to implement or a problem they need to solve – and they can’t go it alone.

As a real estate attorney, Kelli uses her understanding of the law to help people creatively solve problems, with results that resound in the market.

Kelli has always had a love for architecture; she is particularly interested in the ways developers utilize space and create thriving neighborhoods and districts. For Kelli, playing a role in shaping those communities is the ultimate reward.
