Meet Kelli

Hi! I’m Kelli. I’m the managing editor at GEMS Girls’ Clubs. That means I manage and write the content that appears in both SHINE brightly and Sparkle Magazines. It’s a pretty sweet gig!

And REimagine is the place I get to connect with you! So check out my video blogs, leave comments, and let’s get to know each other!
